The Burden of Compliance

As the new Work Health & Safety (WHS) legislation is rolled out around the country, the requirement of persons conducting a business or undertaking are changing.
Under Chapter 3 of the WHS Regulations,‘PCBUs‘ have a duty to manage risks to health and safety. It requires duty-holders to identify hazards, apply and maintain a hierarchy of risk control measures and, in specified circumstances, review those risk control measures.
Chapter 7 imposes duties on PCBUs regarding labelling, safety data sheets and manifests, safe handling and storage of hazardous chemicals and control of risk.
