There is legislation in each of the jurisdictions across Australia regulating the space of work health and safety, which, amongst other things, requires employers to, so far as is reasonably practicable, provide and maintain for employees a working environment that is safe and without risks to their health.?In November 2015, Worksafe Victoria (the entity tasked with the enforcement of Victorian occupational health and safety laws) charged Essendon Football Club (a professional football club competing in the Australian Football League) with failing to provide a safe workplace for its players, by failing to ensure that its supplements program (which involved the injection of certain substances aimed at improving recovery/performance) was conducted in a controlled manner so as to ensure the protection of its players from outcomes harmful to their health and safety. Essendon Football Club pleaded guilty to the charges and was subsequently fined $200,000 by the Victorian Magistrates Court for its work health and safety failures. Worksafe Victoria’s charges followed investigations by the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority and the World Anti-Doping Agency into the legality of Essendon Football Club’s supplement program – Essendon Football Club has recently been found guilty of having injected its players with a banned substance, resulting in the suspension of thirty-four players. This case is an important reminder that all employers must provide a healthy and safe workplace to its employees, even if the work performed by its employees falls outside the traditional concept of work.
