Why do I need the Yellow Card?

Every State and Territory in Australia has in place an Occupational Health and Safety Act (OH&S) or have adopted the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011, which aims to protect the health, safety and welfare of people at work. In these Acts, it is clearly stated that there is a duty of care to ensure workplace safety.

 

In broad terms each State and Territory embraces the OHS and WHS Acts and specifically includes the following: OHS Act 2000 “Employers must provide information, instruction, training and supervision necessary to ensure the health and safety of employees at work.’
