Work Safe Australia has developed the new Work Health and Safety Act for introduction to businesses Australia-wide in January 2012. Until now, legislation and regulations have been different for each Australian State and Territory, meaning that national companies have had to alter their WHSMSs to comply with the varying requirements pertaining to each work site location.
This new model will provide businesses with one set of standardised requirements that can be applied across the board.
In anticipation of these changes to WHS legislation, Drake Safety has begun systematic preparations to ensure that all existing WHS management tools, training and collateral is modified and ready for immediate implementation from January 2012.
Drake Safety will assist you on your safety journey towards becoming a resilient organisation.
