Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) laws that came into effect across Australia are applicable to anyone conducting a business with paid employees as they fall within and under the new acts. The acts state that businesses are to provide verifiable checks and balances to instruct and protect workers as far as reasonable from workplace accidents. It also makes everyone from the directors to the employees responsible for due diligence in regards to all matters of a safe working environment. Further it provides harsh penalties including jail time for those who fail to take this accountability seriously.
