COVID-19 presents major risks to many clients’ businesses and to their people – workers, customers, suppliers and others. Practitioners need to understand the legal issues presented by the virus, and the regulator’s views on what clients need to do.

Understanding WorkSafe’s enforcement strategy is also critical for practitioners advising clients on health and safety issues, as is a good grasp of the alternative sentencing options and related case law trends.

This module will outline WorkSafe’s approach to enforcement and regulatory settings, provide an update of the key cases, especially on alternative sentencing options, and will explore the employment and health and safety issues presented by COVID-19.

Topics covered will include:

  • WorkSafe’s enforcement strategy
  • First reckless conduct case
  • Current enforcement issues – particularly alternative sentencing options
  • COVID-19 – what are the employment law and health and safety issues, and what’s the view of the regulator?

Please contact us if you use a dial up internet connection.
