Work Health and Safety is a field that once was very fragmented among the states, but in recent times there has been a strong national push to standardise work health and safety laws throughout Australia. Knowledge of the current legislation that applies to your workplace regarding Work Health and Safety (WH&S) is vital in developing policies and procedures.
