    Where a Hazard Listing is required, transitional arrangements have been approved by the Policy Custodian to support implementation by Schools/Branches for the action outlined below.

    "Ensure that there is a local area/School/Branch Hazard Listing(s) (or equivalent) documented, which:
    • includes all the "static" activities, where a risk assessment is required in accordance with the Hazard Management – Risk Assessment Decision Tool;
    • is available in the local area, in either hard copy or electronic copy; and
    • is included in the local area/School/Branch induction process (as applicable)."

    (Note: All other provisions for induction outlined in the HSW Induction chapter continue to apply until the local area/School/Branch induction processes include the Hazard Listing.)

    The transition period expires on 30 April 2016. All other requirements within the chapter are required and effective from 21 October 2015 (i.e. date of authorisation).
