Work health and safety obligations in WA under the Work Health and Safety Act 2020

Now that the Work Health and Safety Act 2020 has been passed, what do you need to know about the duties this law will place on those in the workplace?

 

This presentation will provide an overview of who will have duties under this Act, what those duties involve, and the penalties available in the event of a breach. This will include an overview of the industrial manslaughter provision and comparison to the gross negligence provision in the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984.

Industrial Manslaughter Laws –

What to expect from a Defendant Lawyer’s view

The Work Health and Safety Act 2020 has been passed by Parliament and is due to come into effect early in 2021.

A new offence of Industrial Manslaughter has been introduced with substantial penalties for businesses and up to 20 years imprisonment for officers. We will explore what circumstances expose a business or director to a charge of this nature. Robert will look at a couple of cases from other states, exploring some of the lessons we can learn. There has been plenty of comments and some hype about Industrial Manslaughter, we will try to dispel some of the myths and focus on the reality of this serious development in our safety law. 

 

As we explore the circumstances of Industrial Manslaughter, we are likely to also address some of the other changes that arise in the Act that may affect businesses.

Psychologically safe and healthy workplaces - Risk Management approach

“Safety” is not just about the absence of accidents.  It is also concerned with capacity and defences.  Similarly, “healthy” is not just about the absence of illness.  It is also concerned the ability to perform and withstand/survive the “bugs” you are exposed to. 

This presentation discusses the workplace influences upon psychological health, the broader OSH implications and how to manage the risk with a risk management system.

Proving Safety – Practical management strategies for understanding and meeting WHS obligations

While the WHS Act does not introduce new duties for workplace health and safety, it does significantly shift the consequences of breaching those duties.

This presentation will look at the practical management of WHS obligations and critically examine some of the major shortcomings in health and safety management, including health and safety reporting, management inspections and compliance based forms and paperwork.
 

Mitigating Dropped Object Risk: Dropped Object Management

Dropped objects are a major cause of injury at mine sites. Whether it’s loose light fixtures, misplaced equipment, tools, scaffolding equipment, falling debris or one of many other number of potential risks, it is good practice to be cogent of the dangers that dropped objects present in the workplace.

According to Safe Work Australia, falling objects were the second largest workplace killer between 2010-2014, resulting in 125 workplace fatalities and over 15,000 serious compensations claims.

 

A dropped object may be defined as any object with a potential to cause death, injury, or equipment/environment damage that falls from its previous static position under its own weight. 

This presentation will discuss Implementing safety measures to prevent dropped and falling objects and more.....
