2020-09-25

You are invited to join a free webinar hosted by Safe Work Australia and Comcare as part of National Safe Work Month.

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed our workplaces. This year’s National Safe Work Month theme, Work Health and Safety through COVID-19, acknowledges and reflects the wide-reaching impacts of COVID-19 on Australian businesses, employers and workers.

Workplaces have faced new work health and safety (WHS) risks associated with isolated work, mental health, working from home, managing staff and workloads remotely, and the ongoing risk management of exposure to COVID-19.

The webinar will explore the rapid and large-scale changes that workplaces of different sizes and across various industries have undertaken to address the WHS risks and challenges presented by COVID-19 at work.

Presenters from Safe Work Australia and Comcare will discuss how the changes in WHS have contributed to this accelerated shift including:

· WHS risks and hazards

· leadership and culture

· working arrangements, and

· WHS policy and systems.
