The WHS Code of Practice: common sense, a regulatory stick or industrial sword?

5_edited.jpg

Content

The WHS Code of Practice: common sense, a regulatory stick or industrial sword?  To the extent it was not already clear, changes are being implemented across Australian jurisdictions that make it explicit that psychological risks in the workplace (e.g. fatigue, role overload, role/team conflict, discrimination) must be managed as a work health and safety issue.


Whilst the Code of Practice introduced no new duties, its contents are prescriptive and employees, unions and regulators will each deploy and interpret these provisions differently.
