Work Health and Safety

The main object of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) is to "provide for a balanced and nationally consistent framework to secure the health and safety of workers and workplaces".

In accordance with the WHS Act, the Queensland Industrial Relations Commission has jurisdiction over some work health and safety (WHS) disputes, reviews and entry permits.

Searching WHS entry permits

Pursuant to s 151 of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011, the Industrial Registrar must keep available for public access an up-to-date register of WHS entry permit holders as provided under the regulation.
