Keeping Workers Safe

Keeping remote and isolated workers safe using satellite communications.

Understanding and meeting your health and safety obligations.

Pivotel has joined forces with multinational law firm, Baker McKenzie, to prepare an in-depth whitepaper detailing the legal OH&S requirements for organisations with remote and isolated workers across the country.

The purpose of this paper is to raise awareness among persons conducting business, safety practitioners, managers and supervisors of the legal obligations for hazards that exist for people required to work remotely or in isolation.

From a legal perspective, the legislation mandating remote worker safety can be confusing for businesses to interpret and there are some misconceptions surrounding employer obligations. The legislation is more complicated for companies managing a remote workforce across different states and territories in Australia and New Zealand because each jurisdiction has a different legal and regulatory framework.

Failure to comply with the remote worker obligations can result in substantial fines being imposed on businesses and individuals. Individuals can even be sent to prison for reckless breaches of work health and safety obligations.

  • Understanding what is considered remote and isolated work
