We understand how unpredictable and busy your working life is at the moment. COVID has certainly changed the landscape. However, the safety of your workers isn’t an area to compromise and you are still required to provide a safe work place. Good WHS practice and risk management are more important than ever.
Safe Work Australia is still expecting compliance with relevant legislation and regulations as normal. In fact, state WHS authorities are still visiting sites and issuing fines, so there is no room for complacency.
As you know, an employer's main responsibility is to make sure that the workplace is safe and is not exposed to hazards or harmed by the work. As part of National Safe Work Month, checkout Safe Work Australia’s Keeping WHS a priority in your workplace Information Sheet. It provides guidance on how your organisation can continue to model best practice WHS through COVID-19.
