PCBU — A PCBU is a ‘person conducting a business or undertaking’. A PCBU may be an individual person or an
organisation. It does not include workers or officers of PCBUs, volunteer associations with no employees, or
home occupiers that employ or engage a tradesperson to carry out residential work. A PCBU must ensure, so far
as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers, and that other persons are not put at risk by its
work. This is called the ‘primary duty of care’.
Worker — A worker is an individual who carries out work in any capacity for a PCBU. It includes an employee, a
contractor or sub-contractor, an apprentice or trainee, a person on work experience or a work trial, or a
volunteer worker. Workers have their own health and safety duty to take reasonable care to keep themselves
and others healthy and safe when carrying out work.
HSR — A health and safety representative (HSR) is a worker who has been elected by the members of their
work group to represent them in health and safety matters. HSRs are elected by a work group, which is a
defined group of workers who work for the PCBU.
