Another Successful NSCA Breakfast Forum!

Sydney: Contractor Management – Who is Responsible?

The NSCA held its third successful 2013 Breakfast Forum in Sydney on Thursday 22 August.

100+ guests received direct advice and practical solutions from the expert panel of speakers, including Peter Dunphy, Director – Operations Group, Safety, Return to Work and Support Division at WorkCover NSW, Paul Cutrone, Partner at Sparke Helmore Lawyers, Ennio Bianchi, Principal – Risk Management at NSCA and facilitator Jasmine Doak, Director at NSCA.

The interactive forum style event addressed the critical issues facing local Sydney business owners and workers relating to contractor management – including best practice, legal responsibilities and pitfalls to avoid.

Key questions and topics included:
• Obligations to workers and independent contractors
• Contractual arrangements
• Supervision of contractors
• Major challenges of managing contractor compliance
• Key areas of the legislation to watch out for
• Defining what reasonably practicable looks like
• Major shifts and trends in relevant case law decisions and appeals

The NSCA will host Breakfast Forums across all the major capital cities throughout 2013. Information on future events is available on NSCA’s website or contact eventregistration@nsca.org.au
