Workplace Health and Safety Queensland

We’re Queensland’s work health and safety regulator, part of the Office of Industrial Relations.

Our purpose is to improve work health and safety and reduce the risk of work-related fatalities, injuries and diseases.

We work with industry and assist businesses to create a safe and healthy culture in Queensland places of work.

We do this by:

  • making sure work health and safety laws are followed
  • investigating work-related fatalities and serious injuries
  • taking legal action when work health and safety laws are broken
  • educating employees and employers on their legal obligations.
