Our current projects include completing routine reviews of eight chapters as well as progressing (within our resources) major reviews of selected chapters. We have four new chapters in development including one on Investigations which is being funded by an Enforceable Undertaking approved by WorkSafe Victoria. More on these new chapters later.
Reflecting our current challenging environment as a result of the Covid-19 virus we are working on a chapter which will look at the role of the OHS professional in managing a workforce mainly working from home. This is not about guidance on working from home (WFH), but about managing OHS in such an environment. While the need for this chapter has been initiated by the change in working conditions brought about by the Covid-19 virus we are assuming that WFH will remain a feature of work that will impact on the management of OHS.
