Did you know that an employer:

  • Has a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of employees at work;
  • Has a duty to implement risk management strategies;
  • Has the duty to supply appropriate WHS legislated training;
  • Has a duty to consult employees on matters affecting their health and safety;
  • Is required to identify all foreseeable workplace hazards;
  • Is required to assess the risk arising from those hazards; and
  • Eliminate the risk, or if not reasonably practicable to do so, control the risk, by implementing appropriate measures.

This duty of care has also been extended to controllers of the premises, manufacturers and designers of equipment and plant.

Our advice ensures a thorough understanding of obligations and delivers a road map to achieving compliance. To find out more about WHS contact our office today.
