Work Health and Safety: Employer Responsibilities
Work Health and Safety (WHS) is a key responsibility for all businesses and therefore should be top of mind for all employers. The consequences of failing to meet your Work Health and Safety requirements not only can have life-long impacts on the health and wellbeing of your staff if illness or injury occurs, but can also expose employers to exorbitant fines and even possible jail time, if it is found that a business failed to meet its safety obligations.
This course assists employers in understanding their WHS obligations, by defining who holds duties towards protecting the health and safety of everyone coming into contact with their business under the legislation. By completing this course you will understand your obligations to provide a safe workplace including key aspects such as:
· Management Commitment
· Safe Work Procedures
· Training & Supervision
· Safety Reporting Procedures
