On 13 May 2020 Elizabeth Devine presented a webinar for Legalwise Seminars on the topic of ‘WHS in a Pandemic: New National Principles and the Challenges of Working from Home’. An agile response to the new environment we have all been confronted by in 2020 as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, Elizabeth grounded her presentation in an explanation of longstanding WHS law and principles, explained the new national WHS principles and guidelines, examined the particular risks associated with working from home and the mutual obligations of employers and employees to manage those risks and also discussed the critically important and often misunderstood nature of mental health and ill-health in the context of the pandemic.
