Health & Safety
The Health and Safety at Work Act 2016 demands more from employers than a Health and Safety manual on the shelf. It is no longer enough to have “Health and Safety” as a regular item on the meeting agenda, or to appoint a Health and Safety Officer. Employers must be prepared to demonstrate to WorkSafe that the health and safety of everyone at work is fundamental to the way the business operates.
Workplace Law is well equipped to help employers meet their legal obligations, to represent them if a problem arises with WorkSafe and to successfully minimise the risk of penalties or damages being awarded against the business or its managers.
