Work Health and Safety (WHS) Commitment

At TasTAFE, we take our responsibility for meeting our duty of care obligations for ensuring the health and safety of workers and all other persons at TasTAFE very seriously.

We strive to ensure that best practice work, health and safety (WHS) systems are integrated into the operation of all our business areas. This is vital in ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of all TasTAFE workers, students, contractors, and visitors.

TasTAFE’s WHS strategy aims to meet statutory and employee duty of care obligations, as well as create a harmonious, productive learning and working environment by providing a workplace free from risks to safety, health and wellbeing.

The TasTAFE Board, as the Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU), has the primary duty of care for ensuring that as far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers and all other persons at TasTAFE is not put at risk from TasTAFE work or activities carried out on behalf of TasTAFE.

The TasTAFE Board and Executive monitor WHS performance and compliance on a regular basis with a key focus on incident and hazard reporting, workers compensation issues, lost time reporting and trend analysis.

As part of our commitment to health and wellbeing, TasTAFE provides comprehensive support and guidance to employees returning to work after injury and illness.

TasTAFESAFE is the Work Health and Safety (WHS) Policy (Word) which controls the direction of WHS for TasTAFE, risk management which underpins most processes and the WHS action plans which define how each area of TasTAFE intends to meet and manage our WHS responsibilities.
