Overview

Workplace incidents range from minor ‘one off’ incidents to serious medical emergencies, with potentially major legal liability. Even minor incidents, especially if repetitive, can be costly. It is important for employers to understand their legal obligations concerning WHS incidents and be prepared to manage them. It is also important to understand why such incidents occur, the root causes and what corrective action is required to avoid re-occurrences. When documenting incidents, details are critical. What is written down today may decide a court case in two years’ time. It is also vital that all workers understand how to use your incident forms and procedures to ensure timely and accurate information is collected. 

 Presented jointly by AFEI Legal and specialist WHS consultants JOPL Pty Ltd this webinar will cover:

• An outline of the legal framework, including the responsibilities of key duty holders;

• Identifying the types of WHS incidents, mandatory reporting requirements and what can happen after a serious incident;

• How to respond to WHS incidents, how and when to investigate an incident, and when to draw on external investigation resources;

• Investigations by the regulator and the consequences of poor incident documentation;

• The importance of understanding root causes, lessons learnt, and appropriate corrective actions to ensure WHS improvements

The webinar will provide practical advice on incident management and investigation, whether internal or external, or conducted by the WHS regulator and is also an opportunity to have your questions answered.
