Health and Safety Resource Centre

Do you have a burning Health and Safety question that needs answering?

Consultation is a corner stone of good WHS management and, for that reason it is also a corner stone of WHS legislation. Here we discuss appropriate consultation and also examine  the importance of cooperation and coordination  among management and workers and how these concepts can help minimise health and safety risks. 

Under WHS and OHS law, employers are required to notify the Regulator of serious injuries or illnesses and dangerous occurrences. Reporting and investigating incidents is a fundamental aspect of having and maintaining a safe working environment.
