In November 2023 Safe Work Australia issued a case study ostensibly to further explain and provide assistance to understanding the 4 Principles of WHS guidance previously issued in May 2023. Sadly, the guidance continues to misinterpret the legislation and poorly and inaccurately explains the duties owed by Principal Contractors, and therefore does little to provide effective guidance to achieve compliance with WHS legislation in respect of contractor safety management.
It in fact is likely to lead to the continuation of unnecessary and confusing contractor safety management arrangements which add cost and burden to workplace but does little to improve or impact positively on safety.
In this webinar Sue Bottrell will unpack the case study, correct many of the legal errors and explain what you really need to do to meet WHS compliance obligations and improve your contractor safety management. NOT TO BE MISSED. Click here
