Work Health and Safety

Australian Work Health & Safety law, or WHS, addresses both design and workplace, or occupational, safety.  It imposes duties upon designers, manufacturers, and importers of plant, structures, and substances.

WHS legislation is powerful and elegant, and it yields a lot of useful content, whether you are in an Australian jurisdiction or not. It is based on the UK’s approach to health and safety at work, but it has incorporated lessons learned from four decades of experience there.

However, Australia’s federal system complicates the application of our laws. The Safety Artisan will attempt to cut through this complexity and explain the core concepts needed for practical success.
