A discussion on the Health & Safety at Work Act in the context of Covid19, attempts to mandate no jab, no job and other covid response issues.
Health & Safety At Work Act With Sue Grey and Charles Tortise
Join us for this critically important webinar hosted by Voices For Freedom co-founders (Claire Deeks) with special guests Sue Grey and Charles Tortise on 5 October 2021 as we discuss the Health & Safety at Work Act in the context of Covid19, attempts to mandate no jab, no job and other covid response issues.
Every employee has the right to work in an environment where their health and safety is respected. And all employers are obliged by the law to actively limit the risk of harm in the workplace.
The Health & Safety at Work Act is being cited as justification for a “no jab no job” policy. On closer look this becomes harder to accept when reconciled with what this Act is supposed to do. It’s not just a top down set of rules for employers to impose on employees, it can be used by workers to exercise their rights to be consulted, informed and involved in decision making around safer work for all.
In this webinar we will cover:
- basic information on the Health & Safety Act and how it can assist you
- best questions to ask about hazards, risks and controls
- suggestions on effective representation
- where you can get further help.
