Hazard Identification Register

 

Another major component of the Act is managing workplace hazards.    A PCBU must, so far as is reasonably practicable, ensure:

  • the health and safety of workers who work for the PCBU, while they are at work in the business or undertaking
  • the health and safety of workers whose activities in carrying out work are influenced or directed by the PCBU, while they are carrying out the work
  • that the health and safety of other persons is not put at risk from work carried out as part of the conduct of the business or undertaking.

This means organisations should consider and plan for the health and safety of employees, contractors, sub-contractors, visitors, customers and people whose health and safety could be affected by the organisation’s work.  Remember, a self-employed person is a PCBU and must also, so far as is reasonably practicable, ensure his or her own health and safety while at work.
