Work Health & Safety

Work Health and Safety laws are designed to impose obligations on workers and employers to ensure workplaces are free from hazards to physical health and psychological wellbeing. State and Federal workplace safety laws provide for prevention and reporting measures and also set out the fines and other serious consequences that can flow from a failure to ensure the health and safety of workers and other persons.

In addition to industrial accidents and near misses, Work Health and Safety covers the important issue of workplace bullying and harassment.

There have been a lot of changes in this area of law in recent times, and Duddy Shopov Lawyers are well placed to assist employers to navigate the developments and ensure compliance with the relevant legislation.
