Webinars to get message out on OHS reforms


WorkCover NSW to hold series of webinars to educate businesses on new national health and safety laws

August 11, 2011

WorkCover NSW will today begin a series of webinars to educate businesses on the impending introduction of new national workplace health and safety laws.

The government department will hold five interactive webinars each focusing on different aspects of the new laws, including the role of health and safety representatives, officers and volunteers, changes for small business and amendments to the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

General Manager of WorkCover’s Work Health and Safety Division, John Watson, says the webinars are essential for any employer and worker wanting to learn more about the new laws.

"From 2012, new health and safety legislation will be introduced in NSW. Under the new arrangements, all jurisdictions are harmonising their work health and safety laws and these webinars will help business develop a greater understanding of their impact," he says.

"All you need is a computer with an internet connection to participate in the webinars, so we’re encouraging all employers and workers wanting to learn how the new laws affect their workplace to go online and register."

All webinars will be held at 11am between August 11 and September 7. Those interested must pre-register to take part.
