You must review your WHS control measures:
- if health monitoring or air monitoring suggests your current controls are not adequate
- before making a change at your workplace that is likely to create or increase a risk, for example if you start using a new material
- if a new hazard or risk is identified, including other respirable dust hazards
- if consultation with your workers suggests that a review is necessary
- if a health and safety representative requests a review
You may find it useful to:
- create a WHS risk register listing risks from most urgent to least urgent so you have a record of all the control measures in place
- create a schedule and set timelines for when you review your management of WHS risks
- keep records of any WHS incidents – including meeting minutes, file notes, and incident reports so you can review and modify how you manage that risk.
After you review your control measures, if you have identified a new or changed hazard or risk that needs to be addressed, you should:
- go back through the risk assessment steps (identify and assess hazards, eliminate and control risks and monitor and review controls)
- consult with your workers
- create new control measures to address the new or changed hazard or risk that you’ve identified.
