Certified online training courses for companies across Australia
For many years, different Occupational Health and Safety laws have operated in each of Australia’s states and territories.
This has meant, for instance, that if you work in New South Wales, you will have been subject to different safety standards as compared with a worker in Queensland.
It has also meant that an employer who operates in both New South Wales and Queensland has been required to comply with two (or more) sets of laws.
This framework is set to undergo a significant change. State, Territory and Federal governments have agreed to enact new Work Health and Safety laws to bring about a consistent national approach to work health and safety.
Employers have obligations to ensure work is conducted in a safe manner and to protect you in your workplace, but do you know what your responsibilities, rights, and obligations as a worker are under the harmonised WHS system?
Everyone has the right to be provided with a safe and healthy work environment and in turn is obligated to help ensure their own safety and the safety of their colleagues. If employers and workers are alert and work together, workplace accidents can be prevented.
Written in alliance with and proudly supported by Clayton Utz, a leading Australian law firm, this course is designed to be delivered organisation-wide to provide workers and employers with general knowledge of the legal requirements and basic principles and practices relating to WHS in a work environment.
