OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH & SAFETY

Safety in the workplace is not just a right, it's the law. Workplace health and safety (WHS) is all about protecting the safety, health and welfare of people engaged in employment. Simply put, workers have a basic right to perform their duties in a safe environment.

Employers must provide a safe and healthy workplace for all workers. There is a wide range of health and safety obligations and these may differ across states and territories. It’s not as simple as keeping dangerous chemicals labelled correctly or ensuring that scaffolding around a building site meets regulations. It's also the employer’s responsibility for example to provide adequate training and instruction, and ensure employees have the relevant qualifications to perform their required tasks.

At a high level, an employer’s duty of care includes providing:

  • A physical and psychosocial work environment without risks to health and safety

  • Safe systems of work

  • Information, training, instruction or supervision necessary to protect all persons from risks to their health and safety
