At your desk
Melbourne, Victoria 3000

Following on from our fireside chat with George Haros and Martin Richardson on the legal considerations regarding "vaccinations in the workplace" on September 15, please join APSCo Australia and Gallagher Workplace Risk for a discussion on the practical considerations for returning to the office, including understanding your WHS obligations, workers' compensation implications and strategies for implementing policies.

The team from Gallagher, Brianna Cattanach, Damien Stinson and Nicholas Cahill will discuss the following issues and questions, plus more:

  • Managing and supporting vaccine anxiety among employees returning to the office.
  • What do the safety regulators expect to see from businesses/workplaces?
  • What are the workers' compensation implications for businesses? E.g. In the case of an adverse reaction to a vaccine - what’s compensable?
  • What does a good return to work policy need to include?


Do you have a question you would like answered?

Please email Lesley with your question and we will provide the answer during our session. Q&A will also be available throughout the webinar.
