Since 2008 State and Territory governments have been working together to develop consistent "harmonised" OHS legislation across the country. The resulting Work Health and Safety Bill 2011 is currently before the SA Parliament and when passed will represent the biggest change (and challenge) in workplace safety for a generation.
Erin McCarthy, a Partner at national law firm Piper Alderman and a specialist in workplace health and safety law presents a session on these new laws that is aimed specifically at not for profit organisations. As well as looking at the new laws overall, Erin also considers the elements of the legislation that are particularly relevant to the sector including working with volunteers and the liabilities of volunteer board members.
Volunteering SA&NT would like to acknowledge Safework SA for sponsoring the recording of this session.
