Harmonisation of OHS Laws


Supporting Harmonisation with your organisation

The new laws impose a range of new legal responsibilities on organisations especially in relation to the management of contractors.

There is now a new way of thinking when dealing with contractors, its as if they were employees on your payrol!

Not just management, the business owner or a safety committee is responsible - now everyone is!

Department heads in particular are responsible for implementing safety policies and procedures, in particular the management of hazards and incidents, safety training and provide a means for consultation.

A responsibility that hazards and incidents are identified and managed

A responsibility that safety training has occurred such as an induction.

Many of these areas can be covered through a single system that allows your organisation to streamline the entire process and support each compliance criteria.

To achieve greater consistency throughout Australia, the Commonwealth, States and Territories will unify the different Health and Safety laws of each state by implementing a new National Harmonisation of Australia's Work Health and Safety legislation.

Ministers from around Australia agreed to nationally harmonise what will now be called work health and safety (WHS) laws. The WHS model sets out new Codes of Practice aiming to regulate all the existing laws throughout the country and create a more consistent Work Health and Safety standard for all Australian employers and workers.

The new Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation in Australia introduces new requirements around exercising due diligence (including managing incidents more effectively), protecting the safety of our contractors, and increased penalties for breaching the legislation, including fines and jail sentences. Some of the new codes of practice cover areas such as:

  • Collection of and ongoing compliance for required certifications from contractors and employees
  • Managing Work Health and Safety Risks
  • Managing the Work Environment and Facilities
  • Facilities for Construction Sites
  • Managing Noise and Preventing Hearing Loss at Work
  • Hazardous Manual Tasks
  • Confined Spaces
  • Managing Hazards in the Workplace
  • Preventing Accidents at Workplaces
  • Labelling of Workplace Hazards
  • Preparation of Safety Data Sheets for Hazards

There are also provisions for due diligence:

  • to acquire and keep up-to-date knowledge of OH&S matters
  • to understand the nature and operations of the trade, business or other undertaking of the corporation and the associated risks
  • to ensure that appropriate resources to eliminate or minimise hazards from such operations are available and utilised by the corporation
  • to ensure the corporation has processes for receiving and considering information about incidents and hazards and responding in a timely manner
  • to ensure the corporation has, and implements, appropriate processes for complying with its relevant duties and obligations under the legislation, for example, reporting, consultations, training
