About this event
A free online workshop to help new and young workers have an understanding of the highest risk hazards you will encounter when working on construction, demolition or excavation sites.
Employers have a duty under the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws to eliminate, or if that is not reasonably practicable, minimise the risk of exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace.
This page provides information about your obligations under the model WHS laws and how these relate to COVID-19 vaccines.
This information will assist you to assess whether a COVID 19 vaccine is a reasonably practicable control measure to manage the risks of COVID-19 in your workplace. However, while this is a decision you will need to make taking into account your workplace, most employers will not need to make vaccination mandatory to comply with the model WHS laws.
As part of a 2018 Victorian Government election commitment, WorkSafe is introducing infringement notice fines for a range of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) offences.
The NSW Government has taken an important step in keeping our community safe by announcing an increased presence of compliance inspectors across Sydney and regional areas from today to ensure businesses are complying with COVID-19 Public Health Orders.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson, and Minister for Digital and Customer Service Victor Dominello, said inspectors will be checking businesses are doing their part to protect the community by wearing masks and enforcing the QR code check-in.
Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation, Kevin Anderson has announced that SafeWork NSW has allocated an additional $6.4 million to increase the number of inspectors and associated support staff which will further the NSW Government’s successful work in reducing NSW’s workplace injury and fatality rates.
Mr Anderson said the funding will be used to recruit 40 new inspectors to add to the 330 strong team as NSW continues its efforts to keep workers safe. The additional inspectors will lift the ratio in NSW to one inspector for every 10,000 workers – in line with the International Labour Organisation (ILO) benchmark and ahead of jurisdictions including Victoria and Queensland.
New South Wales (NSW) has become the first state in Australia to introduce an industry-wide code of practice to formally clarify the legal responsibilities businesses have to address hazards in the workplace that can cause psychological or physical harm.
NSW Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson and NSW Minister for Mental Health Bronnie Taylor released the ‘Code of Practice: Managing Psychosocial Hazards at Work’ on 28 May, which encompasses risks to psychological health across all NSW workplaces.
