The short answer is no! In Queensland and Australia, workplace accidents cause serious injury and death on an all to frequent basis. Sadly, most if not all could be prevented. Legislation is introduced and enacted to attempt to limit and control the loss of life and injury and hence decrease Australia’s spiralling compensation payouts.
Unfortunately most employers only become aware of their obligations after an accident has occurred. Our systems identify risks and help to reduce those risks as well as formalising what systems you have in place in order to comply with what the government requires.
