WHS Policy

 

WORK HEALTH AND SAFETY POLICY

High Calibre Consultancy will fulfill its health and safety duties with policies and procedures that are developed in response to the requirements of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

Steve Greentree holds the position of officer for the business understanding that it is his responsibility to exercise his duty of due diligence to ensure the business fulfills its health and safety obligations under the WHS Act 2011. The officer will drive the developing WHS management and safety culture influenced directly from the WHS Act, WHS Regulations and information accessed through the Safe Work Australia website. Workplace WHS compliance will be achieved by following procedures developed directly from any relevant Code of Practice. Steve Greentree understands that the maximum penalty under the law for not complying with his duty as PCBU and officer is $100,00. Higher penalties apply if a person is exposed to risk of death or serious injury or illness.

All workers and visitors are to fulfill their duty under the WHS Act which is to take reasonable care for their own health and safety, take reasonable care for the health and safety of others, comply with any reasonable instruction by the business and cooperate with any reasonable policies and procedures of the business. All workers are advised that if they fail to comply with this duty, the maximum penalty under the law is $50,000. Higher penalties apply if a person is exposed to risk of death or serious injury or illness.

The business is committed to keeping the workplace safe with the basics of this being: management commitment, consultation, management of risk, training and instruction, reporting safety, return to work and workers compensation.

The business recognizes that workplace safety is underpinned by worker competency in all areas of the workplace. All work practices are aligned to the national standard and all work is to be performed at least to this minimum standard. Until worker competency levels are confirmed at this standard, workers will be classified as a trainee working under restricted supervision.
