Project Description

occupational health & safety observation report of a construction site visited. SEE ATHE ATTACHED SAMPLE REPORT FOR GUIDANCE

Performance in the practical application over time, and make improvements to their delivery

when necessary. Additionally, the samples will serve as exemplar materials for practical

application assessors appointed by course providers to use as guidance in their assessment


Sampling of provider-marked scripts enables to ensure that the standard of

marking for internal assessment remains consistent over time both within and between

accredited course providers. Using archived materials in this way is intended to maintain

marking standards and enhance parity between the marks before and after moderation.

Completion of observation sheets

Candidates will be supplied with a sufficient number of observation sheets from their course

provider which may be photocopied for the purpose. An example observation sheet is given at

Appendix 4. The observation sheets must be completed during the inspection which should take

45 minutes and no alterations should be made to it. Only brief details of each hazard are

required including where the hazard was located and the nature of the hazard. For example,

‘housekeeping could be better’ does not give enough information about the particular hazard.

Candidates should avoid the tendency to simply identify the tasks being undertaken, or the

equipment that is being used, instead of providing an indication of how the tasks or items of

equipment pose a risk. Candidates must demonstrate their understanding of how identified

hazards have the potential to cause harm, for example, boxes stored on the floor may cause

obstruction of access, egress routes and / or a risk of musculoskeletal injury if lifted.

The observation sheets should be completed by:

• identifying, in the left hand column, any hazards, unsafe work practices and examples of

good practice observed during the inspection;

• providing in the next column, an indication of the urgency of taking action (high, medium

or low priority) which should reflect the level of risks;

• commenting, in the next column on the adequacy of existing controls and identifying any

immediate, medium term and long term remedial actions needed;

• stating, in the right hand column a reasonable timescale for the actions identified.

The distinction between timescales and priorities should be expanded – i.e., that a low priority

action, in terms of risk, might still be completed quickly because it can be done easily;

conversely the most appropriate solution for a high priority (high risk) area might only be

possible in the longer term (in which case interim measures might be necessary).

There should be sufficient information on the observation sheets to enable the candidate to

complete a comprehensive report to management on their findings. Candidates are also

advised to make notes on the area inspected, including activities taking place, in order to

complete the introduction to their report. Whilst poor spelling and grammar will not be marked or

penalised, if the assessor is unable to read or to understand the notes made by candidates

during their inspection then invariably fewer marks will be awarded than would otherwise have

been the case.
