New health & safety laws
State and territory health and safety laws recently underwent a complete overhaul, and a new set of national, harmonised health and safety laws have been formed.
The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (the WHS Act 2011) was enacted 1 January 2012, replacing the Workplace Health and Safety Act 1995.
The changes are definitely daunting, but Master Builders is here to help.

- Refer to the Queensland Government Workplace Health and Safety website for an overview of the new laws and transitional provisions.
