Persons who are in control of a business or undertaking, or have influence over the operations of a business or undertaking, including board members, senior management and those who are self-employed.
The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011 places duties on Persons in Control of a Business or Undertaking (PCBU's) to ensure that workers under their control are not exposed to risks to their health and safety.
The legislation places specific duties on offices and senior management of a PCBU, and penalties apply if these duties are not discharged.
This course provides the participants with the skills and competencies to:
- Understand workplace health and safety duties, determine how they should be met and understand the consequences of failure to meet those duties.
- The meaning of “reasonably practicable” in a risk management context to meet and organisations duty of care.
- Understand the “industrial manslaughter” provisions of the legislation.
- The requirement to exercise “due diligence” in relation to health and safety management. This means that company officers need to have a greater understanding and be more hands on with health and safety management.
