Overview
Brief description of assessment task
Formulate a risk assessment plan to define and characterise the potential influence of environmental factors.

Grading and Weight (% total mark for unit)
45%
Unit Learning Outcomes
ULO1: Identify key national and international environmental health agencies, as well as regulatory programs, guidelines and authorities that control environmental health issues; this will be achieved by you demonstrating your understanding of core health protection principles.
ULO2: Explain environmental health safety standards and related management procedures; this will be achieved by you demonstrating your knowledge or appropriate responses to risks.
ULO3: Review and interpret environmental health data, including toxicology and ecology; this will be achieved by you providing actions and priorities relevant to the risks.
ULO5: Critique plans and strategies that define and characterise the environmental factors that influence health; this will be achieved by you providing context to risks and the consequence steps in management of the risks.
Graduate Learning Outcomes
GLO1: Discipline-specific knowledge and capabilities: appropriate to the level of study related to a discipline or profession; this will be achieved by you analysing and discussing material relevant to the unit content.
GLO2: Communication: using oral, written and interpersonal communication to inform, motivate and effect change; this will be achieved by you effectively communicating information on health protection issues in written form.
GLO3: Digital literacy: using technologies to find, use and disseminate information; this will be achieved by using a wide range of sources online to inform your risk management plan.
GLO4: Critical thinking: evaluating information using critical and analytical thinking and judgment; this will be achieved by you analysing and interpreting health information relevant to health protection risks.
GLO5: Problem solving: creating solutions to authentic (real world and ill-defined) problems; this will be achieved by you providing recommendations and solutions to the risks that you have researched.

Details Note that point 1 is covered in Part A, while points 2-6 are covered in Part B. Part B can be Consists of two parts: completed in table form and is a 1000 word
equivalent component of the assignment.
A. 1000 (+/- 10%) word report on the context
of the risk, with a choice of: You must refer to the AT2 Risk Rating Criteria pdf to determine the likelihood and
1. Music festival in rural setting consequences of the risks you identify.
2. Community/farmers' market
3. Local sporting event for children at You then must complete the AT2 Risk suburban park Assessment Plan Template doc and submit that
4. Fund-raising event at the beach as your Part A and Part B assessment.
You will need to follow this procedure for the entire assignment (this is in accordance with the Australian/New Zealand Standard on Risk Management AS/NZS ISO 31000:2018):
1. establishing context - identifying the basic parameters in which risk must be managed (e.g. of the choices provided above). This will address part A.
2. avoiding risk - establishing whether there is a risk and whether potential risk can be averted (e.g. by questioning whether a procedure is necessary).
3. identifying risks - a systematic and comprehensive process that ensures that no potential risk is excluded from further analysis and treatment (e.g. using root cause analysis).
4. analysing risks - considering the sources of risk, their consequences, the likelihood that those consequences may occur, and factors that affect consequences and likelihood (e.g. existing controls).
5. evaluating risks - comparing the level of risk found during the analysis process with previously established risk criteria and assessing available options for ease of implementation and impact, resulting in a prioritised list of risks for further action.
6. treating risks - implementing appropriate management options for dealing with identified risk (e.g. modifying procedures, protocols or work practices; providing education; and monitoring compliance with infection prevention and control procedures). one file needs to be submitted.
