The Australian WHS Act for engineers

29/03/2016 — Leave a comment

Here’s a short presentation  I gave on the ramifications of the Australian model WHS Act (2011) for engineers when they engage in, or oversee design. The act is a complex beast, and the ramifications of it have not yet fully sunk into the engineering community.

One particularly contentious area is the application of the act to plant and materials that are imported. While the guidance material for the act gives the example of a supplier performing additional testing of the goods to demonstrate it meets Australian Standards, the reality is well, a little different.
