Hospital Operators: Occupational Health & Safety: Duty of Care Requirements

Saturday 1 May 2010 @ 12.35 a.m. | Industrial Law

A recent Mondaq article examines this issue around OHS in hospitals...

"Hospital operators, as employers, under relevant Commonwealth and State occupational health and safety laws (for example the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2000 (NSW)), owe a duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of all their employees. This duty extends to visitors (including accredited medical practitioners and patients), volunteers and contractors."

Are people familiar with similar issues in their work place(s)?
