National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEE078B Contribute to risk management in electrotechnology systems


1. Contribute to the identification of risks and development of management strategies

Performance Criteria:

1.1 OHS policies, processes and procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood..
1.2 The extent of a program or project is established from design brief, specification and/or other
relevant documentation and from discussions with appropriate person(s).
1.3 Potential, perceived and actual risk events and electrotechnology systems risks are identified,
documented and analysed, in consultation with appropriate other person(s) in accordance with
organisation policies and procedures..
1.4 Risk management methods, tools and techniques are used to assist in the analysis and reporting of
identified risk events.
1.5 Risk management techniques are used to analyse electrotechnology systems risks and risk events,
assess options and recommend risk approaches to appropriate person(s) for approval
1.6 Draft risk management processes and procedures are developed and communicated with all stakeholders to ensure understanding of management of risk factors.


2. Contribute to the implementation and monitoring of risk management strategies

Performance Criteria:

2.1 Risk management processes and procedures are produced and submitted for incorporation into work
and project plans to ensure common approach achieving outcomes.
2.2 Activities are monitored against programs and projects plans to identify and responses submitted to
appropriate person(s) for approval for variations in accordance with risk management processes and
established procedures.
2.3 Agreed risk responses are revised for implementation and plans modified following
approval to reflect changing project objectives in an environment of uncertainty, in accordance with risk
management processes and established procedures.


3. Contribute to the evaluation of risk management strategies

Performance Criteria:

.1 Project outcomes are reviewed with appropriate person(s) to determine effectiveness of risk
management processes and established procedures
3.2 Risk issues and recommended improvements are identified, documented and submitted to appropriate
person(s) for approval to incorporate them into ongoing programs and future program and project
and plans.
