General workplace management

General requirements for employers and workers to maintain safe and healthy workplaces.

Health and safety representatives and health and safety committees

Health and safety representatives (HSRs) and health and safety committees (HSCs) provide the means for representation and participation of workers in health and safety matters at the workplace.

Managing risk

Your organisation must manage work health and safety risks in your workplace that may affect workers and other people.
