TSB - Identifying and Managing your Business Risks
Have you ever thought about all the things that could go wrong when starting up a business and the associated risks that may occur?
As a business owner, you have a legal duty to manage risks within your business operations. You are required to minimise or eliminate any risks to the health and safety of your workers and within your workplace. You must take reasonable steps to limit these risks in your business.
To do this, Bernadette Samonte-Latimer will guide you through the step-by-step process of identifying hazards, managing and controlling your business risks to reduce your cost and improve business performance.
TSB - Your Business Legal Obligations under the WHS laws
Do you know what your legal obligations are under the Work, Health and Safety (WHS) laws as a business owner, as a worker or as a contractor?
There are things you need to follow in order to comply with WHS laws such as having a first-aid and emergency plan, an injury and training register and so on.
If you are just starting out as a small business or already have an existing business, Bernadette Samonte-Latimer can guide you through everything you need to know about your WHS legal requirements for your business.
