Guide to Work Health Safety Act

This guide provides an overview of the Queensland Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act). It is designed to help people understand their health and safety duties and rights in the workplace.

Nationally uniform laws ensure all workers in Australia have the same standard of health and safety protection, regardless of the work they do or where they work. The laws replace existing work health and safety legislation in all states, territories and the Commonwealth from 1 January 2012.

Nationally uniform work health and safety laws means greater certainty for employers (particularly those operating across state borders) and, over time, reduced compliance costs for business.

More consultation between employers, workers, and their representatives, along with clearer responsibilities will make workplaces safer for everyone.

Testimonials

Prompt Service

Hi Kelly and Alison,

Thank you so much for working on the WHS Manual last night for Peter Small Plumbing.

I can't tell you how much I appreciated your prompt service - I am sure this is above and beyond your service standard.

Please pass on to your management how thrilled I am with the service I received.

Sometimes you get a bit skeptical when you just google a product with no prior knowledge of a company - but I was desperate and I thought 'Oh well if I get ripped off - I'll just wear it' But from the very first email I received from Alison I could tell this was a professional business.

Thank you so much for helping me with this 'complex' issue of WHS. Thank you also for the helpful notes on 'Implementing a Safety System' (Very helpful for the novice !!
