Occupational Health & Safety (OHS)

According to the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 and WorkSafe Victoria, employers must provide a safe and healthy workplace for their workers and contractors. 

Organizations also have an obligation to ensure that other people (such as customers, visitors and the general public) are not endangered by the conduct of business.  Breach of the Occupational Health & Safety Act 2004 could result in the organization and individual being liable.
