Workplace Health & Safety resources
Workplace Health and Safety Queensland (WHSQ) is separate to us however we do work together to help Queensland employers and their workers achieve zero harm at work.
WHSQ is responsible for improving workplace health and safety in Queensland and helping reduce the risk of workers being killed or injured on the job. It enforces workplace health and safety laws, investigates workplace fatalities, serious injuries, prosecutes breaches of legislation, and educates employees and employers on their legal obligations. WHSQ also provides policy advice on workers' compensation matters.
The WHSQ website provides a range of tools and resources for workers and businesses that can be downloaded for free.

Our Industry sites also feature WHSQ campaigns and initiatives which are specific to particular industries.
The World Health Organization's paper, Healthy workplaces: a model for action highlights the importance of developing a healthy workplace. It provides examples of what a healthy workplace looks like, how to initiate and sustain a healthy workplace, and offers tips to help employers successfully provide an environment that is healthy for workers.
