Workplace Health and Safety

Organisations, workers, contractors and the self-employed each have responsibilities for ensuring their own health and safety, as well as others in the work including anyone who may be on the premises, or affected by work activities.  The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 outlines duties to provide a healthy and safe working environment. Failure to comply can result in fines for individuals and organisations and common law action.

The Act relies on the principle of doing everything that is reasonably practicable to ensure health and safety. This means that risk management is at the core of compliance to these requirements. Implementing strategies to manage key compliance areas aims to reduce the risk of non-compliance.
