Duties of Employers under Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 and Regulations 2007


The OH&S Act 2004 states that employers have a duty of care to

(a) to eliminate risks to health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable; and

(b)  if it is not reasonably practicable to eliminate risks to health and safety, to reduce those risks so far as is reasonably    practicable.

And....

An employer must, so far as is reasonably practicable, provide and maintain for employees of the employer a working environment that is safe and without risks to health.

The regulation and the compliance code provides employers guidance on hazard identification, risk assessment and risk control measures, consultation and the provision of training, information and instruction to employees. In addition to the general duty to control risk, employers are required to implement measures to control specific risks.

What do the regulations require of employers?
If you are an employer, the regulations require you to manage and control risks that are associated with confined spaces.

Hazard identification:
First, you must properly identify confined spaces by applying the definition. Then, in consultation with a health and safety representative or external risk management provider, you must identify the hazards that are associated with entering and working in such spaces.

Risk assessment:
Next, you must assess the risks to workers who might have to enter the space. This means you need to determine whether there is any risk, i.e., injury or illness, associated with each of the hazards identified. What is more, you must record and retain the assessment.

 

OH&S CONSULTING

Occupational Health and Safety, is a key phrase in the workplace. All employers are under a statutory duty to ensure a safe working environment for all employees and persons entering the work site. It is essential that you do everything possible to reduce the risk of injury and illness in the workplace.

To ensure legal compliance we assist companies to undertake Safety Audits

  • A Safety audit will show exactly how you measure up and whether your performance is up to standard. Are you complying with the legal requirements? This information will be presented to you in a form to give a benchmark and focus to your health and safety action plan.

     
  • A Safety Audit comprises of a Desk top Audit which will examine your policies and procedures and how they work as a system.

     
  • A Site Inspection, a trained set of eyes will identify areas where dangers lurk.
    And the Report integrating the desk top audit with the site inspection focusing on the flaws in the system, and prioritises the most threatening issues, where policies are needed, and where existing procedures are not working effectively.

Risk Assessments

A risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, so that you can weigh up whether you have taken enough precautions or should do more to prevent harm. Workers and others have a right to be protected from harm caused by a failure to take reasonable control measures.

Accidents and ill health can ruin lives and affect your business too if output is lost, machinery is damaged, insurance costs increase or you have to go to court. You are legally required to assess the risks in your workplace so that you put in place a plan to control the risks. Delta Training can assist you to undertake the risk assessments at you workplace, in addition Delta Training can train your employees in the skills required to competently assess the risks at your workplace.


 

Manual Handling Assessments

Manual Handling assessments are required for each manual handling task. These tasks are then required to be documented. The purpose of the manual handling risk assessments is to identify potential hazards and then implement appropriate control measures to reduce the risks as far as is practicable. One of the control measures would be Manual Handling training, which is also a mandatory requirement.

Emergency Response Preparedness and Plans

The Act 2004 states an employer, building occupier or building owner you have an ethical and legal obligation to ensure a safe working environment for your employee’s, tenants and visitors.
Emergency response preparedness is a way to ensure the safety of employee’s, tenants and visitors, should dangerous situations occur. A well planned emergency response and evacuation procedure are essential to ensure minimising the potential for injury, death and financial loss. Delta Training can assist with the development and implementation of crisis management and emergency procedures.
