Ai Group is pleased to offer members a series of business videos and webinars providing information on the implications of the new Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws. These informative videos have been designed to provide you with a practical understanding of the requirements of the new WHS Act and Regulations and to assist you with useful advice on how to maximise the opportunities provided by these new laws.
All Australian Governments have committed to adopting these new harmonised WHS laws and many of them are well progressed for the target implementation date of 1 January 2012.
If the laws are implemented in your state/territory on 1 January 2012, you need to act fast to understand and comply with your obligations. If you operate in one of the delayed jurisdictions, many of the requirements within the Act and Regulations can be applied now, enhancing the management of health and safety in your business.
New Work Health and Safety laws - The obligations of officers Webinar
This webinar is designed to inform officers, and those advising officers, of some key issues they need to be aware of in ensuring compliance with the new WHS laws, including defining who is an officer, the duties of officers to exercise due diligence, as well as an outline of the new WHS laws. This webinar will also be relevant to officers in the "delayed" jurisdictions as officers already have potential liabilities under current laws and exercising due diligence can help to protect officers from this liability.
