Occupational Health And Safety Handbook

This booklet has been produced to assist you in your role as an OHS Representative.

The NSW Labor Government introduced the new OHS Act, after negotiations with unions across many industries, to improve the Laws. The changes to the Act are designed to strengthen the Laws and make it easy for Union Representatives to understand.

Unions worked hard to ensure changes to the Act would empower workers by enabling them to address safety issues in their own workplaces.

The new Law allows for workplace safety representatives to be elected and OHS committees to be established to represent their work group (there is more detail about this within the booklet).
