The Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 requires a person undertaking a business or undertaking (PCBU) to take ‘all reasonably practicable steps’ to ensure the safety of workers. Business owners and employers are required to know and understand the risks present in their business and to ensure ‘safe systems of work’ are in place to enable the safe completion of work. Included in the expectations of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 is the requirement to undertake ‘risk assessments’.
Effective risk management is crucial at the pointy end – where your workers are at risk. Whether it’s high risk, routine or non-routine work, good risk management practices are a front line defence against injury or illness.
