Freebie Friday - Workplace Heath and Safety - Primary Duty of Care Explanation

Posted by Craig Thornton

In these series of 3 free videos, Michael Terry from Momentum Ergonomics and Safety takes a deep look at the primary duty of care for businesses and undertakings under the Australian work health and safety legislation.

These are a must watch for your Managers in your organisation.  Each video is approximately 5 minutes long, so there is no excuse not to watch!

For those of you in New Zealand, these videos are a great resource for you too. New Zealand's Health and Safety Legislation is very similar to Australia's work health and safety legislation (well it's almost a direct copy).

Part 1: Safe Work Environment and Safe Plant and Structures


Part 2: Safe Systems of Work and Safe Use/Handling/ Storage of Substances


Part 3: Information, Training and Supervision, Adequate Welfare Facilities and Monitoring of Workers and Conditions
