Your Duties under the Law
Consider your role in your organisation. Are you an Executive team member or a member of the Board of Directors?
Do you have a thorough and up-to-date understanding of your obligations for work health and safety?
Do you know how to what needs your attention and what can be left to others? These are all important questions that you need to be aware of as part of your duty of care.
Talk to us for an up-to-date briefing on your obligations, a review of your way of working, or specific professional development opportunities for your key leaders.
Primary Duty of Care
When it comes to work health and safety a person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of -
(a) workers engaged, or caused to be engaged by the person; and
(b) workers whose activities in carrying out work are influenced or directed by the person;
while the workers are at work in the business or undertaking.
What is Reasonably Practicable?
As an Officer of a PCBU your obligations may be shared but they can never be transferred. Are you aware of the obligations that need to be met, and do you have the framework and ways of working that ensure it is obvious to others that you have discharged your obligations?
Reasonably practicable, in relation to a duty to ensure health and safety, means that which is, or was at a particular time, reasonably able to be done in relation to ensure health and safety, taking-into-account and weighing up all relevant matters.
