Managing risks

First aid and emergency plans

A number of factors should be taken into account by a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) in deciding what first aid arrangements need to be provided.

General workplace management

General requirements for employers and workers to maintain safe and healthy workplaces.

Health and safety representatives and health and safety committees

Health and safety representatives (HSRs) and health and safety committees (HSCs) provide the means for representation and participation of workers in health and safety matters at the workplace.

Managing risk

Your organisation must manage work health and safety risks in your workplace that may affect workers and other people.

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is the least effective method of controlling a safety risk and does not control the hazard at the source.

Remote and isolated work

Providing an effective means of communication for remote or isolated workers, means ensuring that they can access the assistance of emergency services.
