What makes up a compliant safety system?

Safety laws in South Australia govern how employees and employers manage their safety together.
They are made up of Legislation, Regulations, Codes of Practice, Policies, Procedures and Documents.
Together they form a safety system.

The key principles of the laws, detailed in the WHS Act 2012 (SA) are consistent with long-established workplace safety standards in that they:

  • Establish health and safety duties, including the primary duty to protect any person from exposure to hazards and risks that arise from work
  • Provide for worker representation, consultation and participation including through Health & Safety Representatives and Health and Safety Committees
  • Enable compliance and enforcement through SafeWorkSA, the regulator, and
  • Provide for the creation of Regulations and Codes of Practice.
