Australia’s health and safety laws are among the most comprehensive in the world. They cover all forms of work, including dangerous activities, construction sites, and even domestic settings.
The Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1992 (OHSA) is the primary legislation in Australia that governs health and safety in the workplace. The OHSA provides a framework for managing work-related health and safety risks, including hazards, injury management, training, and consultation with employees.
The OHSA is enforced by the Australian government through the Workplace Ombudsman and various state government bodies.
Safe Work Australia is a national policy body responsible for the development and evaluation of the model WHS laws.
