EMPLOYERS' RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTY OF CARE

Workplace safety is paramount: Employers and principal contractors are directly
 accountable for workplace safety. They have a moral obligation and statutory duty of care 
imposed by the OH&S Act, regulations and codes of practice to ensure the workplace 
health, safety and welfare of all employees and individuals, directly and indirectly 
involved with or affected by, activities conducted by their organisation.

Numerous routine safety procedures 
are common place. They include work method statements, site inductions, job safety 
analysis, toolbox meetings, safety walks and the nomination of safety officers.

Employers and principal contractors have a responsibility to ensure they comply fully
 with all mandatory legislative requirements relating to the induction (both site specific
and work/task specific of all their employees and sub contactors. Employers must be
 assured that any individual they employ is “competent”. The employee must meet the 
minimum training and assessment standard. The employer must make sure all plant and
 machinery is serviced and maintained and that appropriate risk assessments have been
 carried out and that site operations are properly supervised.

The National Standard for Licensing Persons Performing High Risk Work stipulates that 
to ensure performance beyond the minimum competencies required for licensing,
employers must provide the HRW licence holder with additional training, instruction and
 information on the equipment operation, hazards, risks and control measures relevant to
 working in a high risk environment.

HOW CAN EMPLOYERS MAKE INFORMED DECISIONS ABOUT POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES?

It is essential that all employers and principal contractors are equipped with tangible 
evidence that verifies an operators competence. Safety is important whether it is in a high 
risk situation or one which is considered less risky.
 More and more employers, principal contractors, sub contractors, safety officers, trainers,
 RTO’s, , assessors, plant operators, training schools, safety consultants, Industry
 federations, associations, councils and unions are beginning to recognise the need for a
 comprehensive log book and are hailing The Brown  Book as the solution.

Employers, contractors, sub contractors and plant operator training schools are now
 actively encouraging their plant and machinery operators to maintain a log book such as 
The Brown Book Log Book.
