The new legislative framework which consists of a model Work Health and Safety Act and Work Health and Safety Regulation has been adopted by each State and Territory, excluding Victoria & Western Australia who are yet to agree on its implementation. The objective of the new WHS legislation is to ‘provide for a balanced and nationally consistent framework to secure the health and safety of workers and workplaces’.
Work health and safety legislation requires businesses to establish a process for consulting with its workers on work health and safety issues that may affect them and to adopt a risk management approach by identifying and eliminating or controlling risks to health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable.
With new legislation Act, WHS applies to persons conducting a business or undertaking who have a duty under the Regulations to manage risks to health and safety. It requires duty-holders to identify hazards, apply and maintain a hierarchy of risk control measures and, in specified circumstances, review those risk control measures.
