Workplace Safety Consultancies
Do you understand your Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) obligation as an employer?
Currently, the Occupational Health and Safety Act 1984 (OHS Act) and Occupational Health and Safety Regulations cover the legislative requirements for all workplace in Western Australia (WA). These detail the legislative obligations for employers and employees which operate in Western Australia.
Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act 1994
Section 19. Duties of employers
States that: An employer shall, so far as is practicable, provide and maintain a working environment in which the employees of the employer (the employees) are not exposed to hazards.
Employees and employers have an obligation to comply with the requirements of the OHS Act and other legislation and can be persecuted for any breaches.
Do you know where you stand in relation to your workplace and the current laws?
Many businesses understand the need for a safety manager/advisor but are not big enough to afford a full time safety position. So, they often operate not fully aware of their obligations and if they are complying with the current laws and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) requirements.
