What are your risk management responsibilities?
Your business must have a clear process in place to eliminate or minimise risks to your workers.
There are two key reasons why:
1. Managing and reducing risks prevents incidents before they happen,
2. protecting your workers’ safety and productivity.
Taking steps to manage risks is a condition of doing business in Queensland. If an incident occurs, you’ll need to show the regulator that you’ve used an effective risk management process.
This responsibility is covered by your primary duty of care in the Work Health and Safety Act 2011(QLD).
