South Australia - New WHS Act & Regulations

13-Jan-2013 From 1 January 2013, South Australia's work health and safety legislation - which includes the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA) and the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2012 (SA), supported by Codes of Practice- will align with New South Wales, Queensland, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory, the Northern Territory and the Commonwealth.

The key principles of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 (SA) are consistent with long established and familiar occupational health and safety standards. From 1 January 2013 the Act:
  • establishes health and safety duties, including the primary duty to protect any person from exposure to hazards and risks that arise from work
  • provides for worker representation, consultation and participation including through Health and Safety Representatives and Health and Safety Committees
  • enables compliance and enforcement through SafeWork SA, the regulator, and
  • provides for the creation of regulations and Codes of Practice.
Any significantly new regulation requirements will have transitional periods to provide businesses and workers with time to prepare.
