Assessment 3

The motive of this act is to protect and conserve Australia’s environment and biodiversity through the identification and management of potentially harmful activities., as well as the management of marine areas and the control of international wildlife trade. Overall, the EPBC Act plays a crucial role in safeguarding Australia’s natural heritage for future generations.

Answer 2 – a. Developing a policy and procedure requires a systematic and collaborative approach that involves several steps. First, identify the need for the policy and its objectives. Second, research and gather information related to the policy. Third, draft the policy and procedure and seek input from relevant stakeholders. Fourth, review and revise the policy and procedure based on feedback. Fifth, approve the final policy and procedure and communicate it to all relevant parties. Finally, regularly review and update the policy and procedure to ensure it remains current and effective. Effective policies and procedures are critical to ensuring organizational compliance, consistency, and efficiency (Hashish, 2020).

  1. Policy development should involve a diverse range of stakeholders to ensure a comprehensive and inclusive decision-making process. This may include subject matter experts, policymakers, government officials, industry representatives, community groups, non-governmental organizations, academics, and affected individuals or groups. Consultation with these groups can help identify potential impacts of policies, consider alternatives and best practices, and ensure that the policy is feasible, effective, and fair. The involvement of a broad range of perspectives can also increase public support for the policy and its successful implementation.
  2. To monitor and review policies, policymakers can establish clear and measurable objectives, identify performance indicators, create a monitoring and evaluation framework, conduct regular reviews, gather feedback from stakeholders, use data analytics, and seek expert advice. Clear objectives help to evaluate policy outcomes, while performance indicators measure progress towards those objectives. A monitoring and evaluation framework are essential to regularly assess policy performance. Regular reviews identify areas of improvement. Gathering feedback from stakeholders can highlight unintended consequences of policies. Data analytics can be used to analyze trends, and expert advice ensures policies are based on the latest research and best practices. By implementing these strategies, policymakers can ensure that policies are effective, efficient, and achieve their intended outcomes (García Johnson & Otto, 2019).

Answer 3 –

Challenge Response
An employee does not believe the new policy will be a benefit to the workplace. They are too stuck in their old ways and are resistant to change. It is understandable that change can be difficult, but the new policy has been put in place after careful consideration and with the goal of benefiting the workplace. They encourage all employees to approach the new policy with an open mind and give it a chance before making any judgments (Haldorai, et al., 2020).
New policies and procedures are too complex to follow so employees avoid using it. It is important to address their concerns. Complex policies and procedures can lead to non-compliance and negatively impact the workplace. Employees should be encouraged to provide feedback and raise any concerns they have about the policies and procedures. In some cases, simplification of the policies and procedures may be necessary. Additional training or support may also be provided to help employees understand and comply with the policies and procedures (Stackhous & Turner, 2019).
Most of the policies and procedures have not been updated for some time because management do not want to allocate resources for the updates. It is important for policies and procedures to be regularly updated to ensure that they remain relevant and effective. If management is hesitant to allocate resources for updates, it may be necessary to communicate the potential risks and consequences of outdated policies and procedures
