Remote and Isolated Work


The Work Health and Safety Act (2012) and the related regulations require a “person conducting a business or undertaking” (PCBU) to manage the risks of remote and isolated work. ┬áThe two specific requirements are to provide;

  1. safe systems of work, and
  2. effective communications with the worker

Interestingly, the relevant code of practice recognises you can be isolated when working with a member of the public.  Read more on the subject here.
