Serious Incident Handbook

Serious Incident Handbook

Management in Australia and New Zealand

It is important that all employers are aware of their obligations when a serious incident occurs in the workplace as specific reporting and notification requirements apply.

FCW Lawyers have developed the Serious Incident Handbook to give you clear and practical understanding about how to respond if a serious incident occurs, including introduction to general principles of health and safety law, the obligations associated with a serious incident and relevant case law examples.

Whether you browse specific chapters or review the entire handbook, you will be better prepared to respond.
