Licensing, Legislative, Regulatory Considerations
While there are no licencing requirements for conducting local risk control, the WHS Act and Regulations require persons who have a duty to ensure health and safety to ‘manage risks’ by eliminating health and safety risks so far as is reasonably practicable, and if it is not reasonably practicable to do so, to minimise those risks so far as is reasonably practicable.
A person conducting a business or undertaking must ensure that information, training and instruction provided to a worker is suitable and adequate having regard to:
- the nature of the work carried out by the worker
- the nature of the risks associated with the work at the time of the information, training and instruction, and
- the control measures implemented.
The training provided must be readily understandable by any person to whom it is provided.
