Understanding Workplace Manslaughter (WorkSafe Victoria webinar)
In May, WorkSafe held an educational webinar explaining the new workplace manslaughter legislation and what affects it may have for Victorian businesses and its workplace safety related responsibilities. During the webinar, WorkSafe had a panel of experts discussing who the legislation applies to. They run through details and discussed examples of what employers and workers need to do to be compliant with the new laws.
