New work health and safety (WHS) laws were introduced on 1st January 2012
The WHS laws replaced the existing OH&S laws.
These new laws will be consistent across Australia.
These changes will affect all Australian workplaces with INCREASED PENALTIES(corporations face fines of up to $3 million per offence, while individuals face fines of $600,000 or 5 years in jail.) for non compliance.
What you need to do.
Ensure you have documented safe systems of work in your workplace.
