You have a shared responsibility for our team's safety

How Am I Responsible? 

As a staff member, or contractor in the Creation Films team, you are a PCBU: A PCBU is a ‘person conducting a business or undertaking’. A PCBU may be an individual person or an organisation. The primary duty of care requires a PCBU to ensure health and safety ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’. When used in this context, something is reasonably practicable if it is reasonably able to be done to ensure health and safety, having weighed up and considered all relevant matters, including:

  • How likely are any hazards or risks to occur?
  • How severe could the harm that might result from the hazard or risk be?
  • What a person knows or ought to reasonably know about the risk and the ways of eliminating or minimising it (e.g. by removing the source of the risk or using control measures such as isolation or physical controls to minimise it).
  • What measures exist to eliminate or minimise the risk (control measures)?
  • How available and suitable is the control measure(s)?
  • Lastly weigh up the cost:
  • What is the cost of eliminating or minimising the risk?
  • Is the cost grossly disproportionate to the risk?
