Do you have a burning Health and Safety question that needs answering?

Senior management (officers) are legally required to exercise due diligence (take reasonable precautions) to ensure the organisation meets its obligations to provide health and safety in the workplace.

In safety legislation, officers of an organisation are defined in the same way as in Section 9 of the Corporations Act 2001. They are typically Chief Executive Officers, Chief Operating Officers, Managing Directors, Chief Financial Officers or Directors. Officers are people within an organisation who have influence and decision-making power.
