Incident investigation: implications of the model work health safety legislation for Victorian businesses

Presentation by: Graham Dent, Principal, Dent Consulting & Legal

How can businesses be proactive in managing an incident investigation under both Victorian and national safety legislation? Leading OHS lawyer Graham Dent spoke to Central Safety Group on April 14, 2015, about what happens with incidents when businesses consider themselves to be “Victorian” (with their facilities and personnel based in Victoria), but operate interstate. They could have employees who travel as sales representatives or transport workers or install and maintain plant and equipment interstate.
Graham discussed how he has worked on recent cases involving interstate aspects, where the approach of the interstate authorities has induced “cold sweats” for some clients.
Graham also talked about how WorkSafe Victoria deals with (or tries to avoid) the Codes of Practice and guidance under the national Model Work Health Safety laws that now govern all states except Victoria and WA.

The presenter:

Graham Dent has over 30 years’ experience in the regulatory field including time as a government prosecutor in OHS, industrial and consumer law matters. He is now in private legal practice representing clients in major regulatory actions for OHS, environmental and other areas. Graham is also the founder of Australia’s largest online OHS forum with 13,500 members, the Work Health Safety Leadership Group.

OHS and Social Sustainability
As the concept of social sustainability becomes more important, businesses and organisations are treating people more as an asset to be valued and looked after.
How can OHS practitioners support their businesses in building and maintaining social sustainability? Phil Lovelock has some answers when he presents a model for doing this in a CSG lunchtime Zoom talk on 9th August.
He will outline a 5-point action plan with elements that reflect the growth and maturity of OHS as a profession. It will cover people, workplace environment, systems, the organisation and external stakeholders.
It is a new, broader approach to the OHS role that will be useful for anyone facing this challenge.
