WHS (previously known as OHS)
In NSW new Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws replaced the Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) laws on 1 January 2012. The new laws (Work Health and Safety Act 2011) will provide greater consistency, certainty and clarity across Australia making it easier to understand your workplace health and safety duties.
The best way to avoid workers compensation claims is to prevent them. Ensuring you have a safe work environment, your employees are adequately trained and appropriate business procedures are in place will help you save money.
