Occupational Health and Safety

Creating a safe work environment is an important legal requirement for all businesses. Under occupational health and safety (OHS) legislation, businesses are legally obliged to:

  • provide safe work premises
  • assess risks and implement appropriate measures for controlling them
  • ensure safe use and handling of goods and substances
  • provide and maintain safe machinery and materials
  • assess workplace layout and provide safe systems of work
  • provide a suitable working environment and facilities
  • have insurance and workers compensation workers’ compensation insurance for your employees

Although it may cost to implement safe practices and install safety equipment, the effect of not taking action can be severe and costly. Complying with OHS requirements can prevent you from being prosecuted and fined, and help you to retain skilled staff.

Your legal obligations may vary according to circumstances and industry. We can help you and your business comply with OHS requirements and the various regulations governing workplaces in Western Australia.

Whether it is OHS policy development, advice on regulatory compliance, help with an OHS dispute or WorkSafe matter, we are here to help.
