Recent workplace safety legislative changes and proposed changes in various states have highlighted the importance of employers taking more responsibility to ensure workplace safety. In Queensland, for example, employers now face up to 20 years of imprisonment and substantial fines. For organisations that want to be 100% sure they are compliant, Fire & Safety Australia, a leading provider of emergency response and safety training, suggests employers conduct a risk assessment and safety audit. Additionally, they should ensure their staff are well-skilled and knowledgeable by undertaking a comprehensive Health and Safety Representative training course that is designed in accordance with new legislative requirements.
