The on-site visits are available across all states and aim to assist employers in ensuring they comply with the new requirements. Employers that either missed out on the seminars, or are simply seeking more in-depth information, can arrange for a visit from a Printing Industries employee relations specialist to help them understand the changes.

Ken Stenner, national employee relations and OHS manager, claims the recent seminars were well received in the industry with many attendees surprised at the wide-ranging effects the new laws have on their business.

“Many employers at the seminars did not realise the complexity of the new provisions and were relieved to learn about what they need do to ensure they comply with the obligations and avoid prosecution for breaches,” says Stenner. “Others were pleased to discover the opportunities now available to them in making effective arrangements to suit both their business and their employees.”

The on-site visits are open to all organisations, and Stenner claims businesses should also encourage their employees to take part in the on site visits to gain a better understanding of any changes which may occur in the workplace.
