Employers have a primary duty of care under the Work, Health and Safety Act 2011 (ACT) to secure the health and safety of workers and workplaces. However, this responsibility does not fall on employers alone. Everyone has duties to ensure the safety of others at work including officers and workers themselves.
This session seeks to provide an outline of the legislative framework behind WHS legislation in the ACT and provide guidance on how employers can comply with their obligations, access relevant resources and guidelines and promote a healthy WHS culture at the workplace. The session will also provide case examples to demonstrate what duty holders should do in a given scenario to comply with their WHS obligations.
Please note that this session does not include any discussions on technical WHS information.
