Specific report requirements:
Identify, describe and assess the hazards in the case study

Assess the risk (3 only) using a suitable assessment tool (which should be included in an Appendix to the report).
Make recommendations for control and management of hazards Make recommendations based on the ‘hierarchy of control’ and ‘as low as reasonably practical’ for the three most significant hazards and/or other issues that should be addressed. Document these three in a risk register.

Written report presentation The report should be presented as a professional document designed to be received by a senior management representative in the organisation. It should include: a title page, table of contents, brief summary of findings (executive summary), body of report (including suitable headings), conclusions and appendices where relevant.
Appendices necessary to support the report findings will not be included in the word count, although material in the appendices should be minimised as it detracts from overall presentation.
