New WHS guidance for small businesses
New guidance material to help small business owners and operators understand their responsibilities under WHS laws has been released by Safe Work Australia.
“If you make or influence the significant financial or operational decisions for a business then you may be an ‘officer’ under WHS laws," said Safe Work Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Michelle Baxter.
“As an officer, you have a duty under WHS laws to look for ways to lead on WHS matters.
“Our new guidance material includes videos of real officers explaining how they fulfil this important role within their business.”
Safe Work Australia produced the guidance material after investigations found that small businesses needed more practical guidance about their WHS obligations.
The guidance material, including short videos, is available on a dedicated web page for officers.
A broader guide for officers of businesses of all sizes is also available.
