Assessment task 1

The Workplace Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) provides an agenda for safeguarding the health and welfare of the employees at the workplace. It also aims at safeguarding the health of all the other workers who might be influenced by the occurred incidence.

Its key features comprise of safeguarding the interests of general public so that their health is not posed to hazards while performing their duties at the workplace (State of Queensland, 2018).The WHS Act places the main responsibility for safeguarding the health and wellbeing of the employees on person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU
) .The duties are also allocated to the officers , workers and other persons at the workplace.

It also sets out the requirements for notification of incidences, resolution of issues , consultation  with the workers and inspection of powers and functions.

a. PCBU: A person conduction business or undertaking (PCBU) stands for businesses, organizations and individuals who are executing the trade activities. They are considered a worker.

b.Officers of organizations:  Officers also include directors and they are legally obliged to make sure that the business has made sufficient arrangements in compliance with the legal norms. They are accountable for acquiring and updating the data related to health and safety hazards of the workplace.

e.Others in the workplace: Other people at the workplace should take reasonable care for their own health and ensure that their acts do not affect the health and security of their peers. They should act in compliance with the instructions given by the PCBU ( Perez and del Bosque, 2014).

The WHS Code of Practice applicable for the hospitality industry include regulations regarding first aid in the workplace, hazardous manual tasks, managing health and safety risks at the workplace, labeling of workplace hazardous chemicals and managing the risks of falls at workplace etc. (Quinlan, Bohle and Rawlings-Way,2015).

It prescribes that first aid should be provided to the workers and others who have been injured. The code of practice also identifies the hazardous manual tasks and regulates the risks of workers being affected by the handling of manual tasks. The code guides how to correctly label the hazardous chemicals being used at the workplace. It also prescribes guidelines to prevent  the risk arising from slips, trips and falls.

As per WHS Act, 2011 and Electrical Safety Act 2002 in the case of death of a worker caused due to negligibility, the maximum penalty is of 20 years of imprisonment for individuals and $10 million for body corporates. There are various categories of industrial manslaughter.In category 1 offense, the person would be prosecuted in the District Court.

The PCBUs and employees should be encouraged to provide a work environment which is free from risks to health and safety. For this, they should train, supervise, instruct and monitor the health of workers and workplace conditions (Amponsah-Tawiah and Mensah, 2016). They have the duty of care towards their staff. They should identify the hazards and formulate and implement the policies related to adoption of safety procedures in the organization. They should be encouraged to change the job duties of the personnel, introduce safety equipment and provide safety gears to the workers (Australian Catholic University, n.d.).

The costs and benefits associated in this regard are costs of initial review, training related to implementation and distribution of information and its documentation. The other costs include treatment costs and monitoring and administration cost of WHS. It also includes purchasing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) by the company. The cost related to purchase of infrastructure, construction and equipment would also be included in this (Thiede  and Thiede,2015).

There are tangible benefits associated with such measures. It includes increased work efficiency, improved management and increased awareness of the employees.

The benefits are increased employment in the organization, stable employment conditions, increased awareness of the employees and improved approach to safe work which results in ensured profitability of the enterprise (Jones, Hillier and Comfort, 2016).

It also helps to safeguard the staff from injuries and chronic diseases. It means that the skilled and loyal staff shall be retained by the organization by preventing back pain and other musculoskeletal disorders and injuries arising from slips, trips and falls etc. (Barrett, Mayson and Bahn, 2014).
