Everyone in the workplace has WHS duties under the model WHS Act, whether you are a worker, a PCBU, or both a worker and a PCBU. Use the Know your duties tool to find out how to meet your duties under the WHS laws for your specific industry.
Select from the industry list below to find out more.
The Know your duties tool doesn’t measure compliance or provide information about WHS laws that are specific to a state or territory.
Contact the WHS regulator in your state or territory for more information about the WHS laws that apply to your workplace. The WHS regulators also provide practical advice, resources, and tools to help you be safe when working in your relevant industry.
