Harmonisation and Work Health and Safety Update - Brisbane

May 2015 |

According to latest published data, 39 workers have been killed in workplace accidents in Australia so far this year. Statistics like that only reinforce that workplace health and safety is a major issue that cannot be ignored.

In this seminar Stephen Hughes, Special Counsel, and Lara Radik, Senior Associate, will explore recent developments in work health and safety including:

  • An update on progress towards a national harmonised work health and safety regime.
  • Increased penalties in recent decisions.
  • Recent judicial interpretations of what constitutes 'reasonably practicable'.
  • Prosecution of officers under the harmonised legislation.
