Annual Assessment

Annual Safety Assessment

The Annual Safety Assessment (ASA) is a comprehensive study of your workplace and its operations to identify health and safety issues of concern. This information can be used to develop a plan to address safety issues. A Health and Safety Action Plan template has been provided for this purpose.

An ASA is required for all departmental workplaces with over 30 workers. However, it is recommended that all DET workplaces conduct an ASA.

Normally, the ASA would be facilitated by your Health and Safety Advisor (HSA) - formally WHSO. For those workplaces which do not have a HSA, a person with a responsibility for health and safety at the workplace would be suitable to facilitate the ASA.

The two resources listed below are provided to assist with your ASA.
