A sneak peek inside the episode:

“I find that a lot of services, whether it’s childcare, schools or after school hours, they’re surprised that they’re still duty holders under legislation, under work health and safety legislation. So although it is heavily regulated with the national regulations, there’s still a duty of care and responsibilities under Work Health and Safety Act and regulations.”
