  • the names and contact details of people who interact with us,

Using and disclosing personal information

We do not usually disclose personal information except to the person it is about, with the person's consent or where we need to for the reason we collected it - such as to respond to an enquiry.

We publish data about work health and safety and workers' compensation on our websites, as part of our functions and activities. We carefully prepare the data before publication to make sure it doesn't disclose personal information.
