Each State and Territory has a WHS Act (or OHS in Victoria) that regulates safety in all workplaces. The Acts in all states and territories except Victoria and WA were made uniform in the 2010s. The Victoria and WA Acts while not uniform, contain the same basic provisions. The Acts require the employer to establish a system of local Health and Safety Representatives and WHS Committees to ensure that WHS matters are dealt with as and when they arise (or hopefully beforehand). These are elected positions and committees and NTEU members can and should get involved.
