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.
