duty of care to ensure the safety and wellbeing of people in receipt of their services.
Legislative and regulatory obligations underpin an organisation’s policies, which
determine the procedures to guide service delivery that promotes and enhances the
safety and wellbeing of all people.
Duty of care describes the legal obligation that individuals and organisations have
to anticipate and act on possible causes of injury and illness that may exist in their
work environment or as a result of their actions. Duty of care is part of common law
and it requires you to do what is fair and reasonable to prevent harm or injury to the
person or their property. While aspects of WHS (work health and safety) legislation may
vary between states and territories, there are common legislative requirements and
obligations under the duty of care principle.
Here is more information about duty of care and breaches of this principle. Notes Dt ca
Duty of care is the obligation a person has to act in a way that would not cause harm. nlc
Negligence occurs when duty of care has been breached and harm to either person
or property ensues. It is the legal and ethical obligation of any community worker,
supervisor or organisation to ensure that people using services are not exposed to
unnecessary or unreasonable risk. Highlights
