Document Overview

A Work Health and Safety (WHS) Policy outlines the obligations of a company’s management and its employees towards workplace health and safety. Businesses should implement a WHS Policy in the workplace to promote the practice of safe work. Some businesses are legally required to have a WHS Policy. Good WHS policies should contain provisions which seek to remove or reduce any risks to the health, safety and welfare of all employees, contractors and visitors.

Every business or organisation should consider adopting a WHS policy. It is recommended that all WHS policies be reviewed by a business or workplace lawyer to best tailor the needs of the policy.
