Improving the provision of OHS support in Australia

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    This article examines the need for Australian workplaces to have, or to have access to, sufficient OHS knowledge, capability and specialised services to be able to fulfil their legal responsibilities and to effectively protect the health, safety and welfare of people at work. Drawing from international experience in seven European countries, the article examines the importance of providing OHS "know-how" and expertise, and the potential role of legislation to underpin the role and functions, organisation and funding, professional competence, quality and effectiveness of OHS support.
