Work Health & Safety Legislation - Comparison By State

Under the WHS Act 2011, different States and Territories have made slight amendments to their legislations. The changes keep the intent of the legislation yet there are certain changes by State/Territory, such as new directives to follow Codes of Practice etc. These may be relevant to individual roles and/or organisations.

SafeWork Australia has provided a detailed comparison table highlighting the differences https://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/doc/model-whs-act-cross-comparison-table, however for ease, we have summarised the information to make it easier for you to find the legislations relevant to your location.
