Safe Work Australia is committed to making the information on this website accessible to as many people as possible. This website aims to conform to Level A (and in parts, Double A) of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2 (WCAG 2.0), developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). 

The website is designed to display on all commonly used Internet browsers and to work effectively with accessibility hardware and/or software. Page sizes have been kept as short as possible to accommodate a range of connection speeds and are scalable to accommodate common screen resolutions. 

If there is information you require and it is in a format you cannot access, or if you experience any other accessibility difficulties, please email 

Downloadable documents
