When a PCBU Must Consult With Workers
A safe and healthy workplace is easier to achieve when workers are consulted and involved. That is why consultation is mandatory under the WHS Act.
(See sections 47 - 49)
Managers and Supervisors have an important part to play in this on behalf of the PCBU and should consult with workers, Health & Safety Representatives, or Health & Safety Committee when;
■ Identifying hazards and assessing risks to health and safety
■ Making decisions about ways to eliminate or minimise those risks
■ Proposing changes that may aﬀect the health and safety of workers
■ Making decisions about the adequacy of facilities for the welfare of workers
■ When making decisions about procedures for:
- consulting with workers
- resolving workplace health and safety issues
- monitoring the health of workers
- monitoring workplace conditions
- providing information and training for workers
For further details see pages 10, 39 and 40 of the Work Health and Safety Consultation, Co-operation and Co-ordination Code of Practice
