Tasmania's Work Health & Safety Legislation

Under the legislation it is the Primary Duty of care of the PCBU to ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, the provision of information, instruction, training or supervision to workers needed for the to work without risks to their health and safety and that of others around them.

The legislation doesn't tell you how you must comply, it just gives you an outline of what is expected, and you need to then put processes in place to ensure that you comply.

So what does that really mean?

How do you as an employer or PCBU ensure that your employees have been given the information, instruction, and training they need to work safely?

You need to ensure that your employees are trained and competent, that they understand how to assess the risk, put controls in place, and they have the correct information and instruction to conduct their tasks safely.

We can assist you to understand and implement all aspects of the legislation.
