Heath & Safety Solicitors - Injury Compensation Claims

SOLICITORS HELPLINE 1800 339 958


Health and safety law in Australia is highly fragmented with each state having its own legislation, the effect of which is that standards vary dependant on location. There is some law that operates on a National Standards basis including the Manual Handling Regulations but many situations are either not covered by legislation at all and depend on common law interpretation of employers’ negligence or only apply locally in a particular state or territory. There are however moves afoot to unify and codify all law relating to occupational health and safety. The Australian Government in the form of the Minister for Employment and Workplace Relations has announced a national review into model Health & Safety (OHS) Laws. The panel dealing with the review has been asked to report to the Workplace Relations Ministers' Council on the optimal structure and content of a model OHS Act that is capable of being adopted in all jurisdictions. If you have had an accident at work and need legal advice on injury compensation claims just call the helpline and speak with one of our health and safety solicitors at no cost.

Health and Safety Risk Assessment

The current situation in most cases where a National Standard or Code or Guidance is not available indicates that an employer is responsible for taking reasonable steps to ensure the health and safety of employees. Employers are expected to make risk assessments in all situations where there is the potential to put health and safety at risk and to take reasonable steps to reduce any assessed risk down to an acceptable level. If an employer fails to take these perfectly reasonable actions there will be a finding of negligence in any subsequent compensation claim resulting from injury caused to the employee due to the employers failures.
