This short course is presented via Zoom Meetings and starts 1:00pm Australian Eastern Daylight Time.

The comprehensive changes to Australia’s Work Health and Safety legislation resulted in significantly increased responsibilities for officers (including directors and company secretaries) and senior managers. It is therefore critical that the obligations arising under Work Health and Safety legislation are well understood by officers and managers, to minimise potential personal liability and demonstrate that they have exercised due diligence.

The aim of this course is to promote understanding of the legislative framework that governs Work Health and Safety statutory compliance in Australia.

The course objectives are to:

  • highlight key Work Health and Safety legislative risks and emerging issues
  • emphasise the important role of Work Health and Safety governance in relation to legal compliance
  • promote an understanding of officer obligations under the Work Health and Safety legislation
  • recognise the important role that safety management systems play in the due diligence process
  • manage continuous improvement and evaluation approaches to achieve statutory compliance.
