Guidance from Safe Work Australia on safety obligations for small business owners and operators

The national workplace safety agency, Safe Work Australia, has published a range of videos and information sheets to help small businesses meet their health and safety obligations.

Workplace health and safety (WHS) laws impose special obligations on persons who are officers in a business.

The material from Safe Work Australia will assist small business in identifying who is an officer in their business, and guide them through the duties that officers have under WHS laws.

The material can be accessed online at Safe Work Australia’s website.
