Downloadable documents

Safe Work Australia tries to publish documents in multiple formats that have been enhanced for accessibility. Some publications on this website, particularly third-party supplied documents and older documents, are only available in the Portable Document Format (PDF). We have taken steps to ensure where possible that alternate formats are available, commonly Rich Text Format (RTF). To access PDF files download the free Acrobat Reader.
