Course outline

As an officer’ under the Work Health and Safety Act, are you aware of your due diligence obligations and responsibilities? Business SA’s WHS for Officers course outlines key responsibilities and provides clarity around your duties as an officer to help ensure due diligence in the workplace. 

Responsibilities covered in this course include understanding Work Health and Safety legislation; defining relevant duties within your organisation; enforcing reasonably practicable regulations; understanding codes of practice; and the impact for failing to comply with legal requirements to ensure a safe workplace.

Officers who fail to carry out due diligence can be found guilty of offences under the WHS Act. Business SA wants to ensure all officers understand their duties and are not placed in a position where they may be liable.
