New labour hire guidance from Safework Australia

In BICSI Bytesby info@bicsi.com.au

Safework Australia recently released a new guide entitled ‘Labour hire: duties of persons conducting a business or undertaking’ that provides information for persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs) in labour hire arrangements on complying with their health and safety duties under the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws.

The guide has practical information for labour hire and host PCBUs on their roles before and during the placement of labour hire workers.

There are new practical examples and guidance on the duty of host and labour hire PCBUs to consult, cooperate and coordinate.

Businesses using or providing labour hire should read the guide for information about their WHS responsibilities.

The labour hire guide is available at https://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/topic/labour-hire
