Health and safety have traditionally been regarded as something of a side issue by many managers. Some have assumed that it is a specialist function completely separate from their normal management responsibilities. Frequently, managers believe that appointing a health and safety specialist or nominating someone within their organisation as responsible for health and safety is sufficient response and absolves them from any obligation in the area. Lack of WHS training, and inadequate resources provided by employers to comply with safety and health regulations, are serious problems in Australia.
