Work Health and Safety Act 2020

If your P&C has one or more employees, you must ensure you are familiar with the new 2020 Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act. 

The requirements of the Act are in place for all organisation members (volunteer and paid) if you have one or more employees.

If no paid workers are engaged for work-related tasks by your P&C, the WHS Act does not apply. However, as volunteers are owed a general duty of care by the people and the organisations they support, it is good practice to comply with general WHS duties anyway.

The Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) has information available regarding the Act that is tailored to volunteer organisations.

We recommend you discuss the Act at a P&C meeting if you've not already done so.
