Everyone has a role to play in making sure workplaces are healthy and safe. Therefore a Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking (PCBU) must engage on health and safety matters with workers who carry out the work or may be affected by the work.

Workplaces have better outcomes in this area when workers have a say about health and safety matters.

CAA Director Graeme Harris explains the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and what it means for worker engagement.
