Work Health and Safety Regulations

For: Employers and managers Information seekers

The Work Health and Safety Regulations provide much of the practical guidance and detail.

The Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 are made under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

The Regulations:

  • detail what is required to support the duties in the Act
  • specify the way some duties must be carried out
  • set the procedural and administrative requirements of the Act, such as licences for specific activities and record keeping.

The Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 also allow us to grant an exemption to an organisation from complying with a Regulation. We usually only do this when the standards of health and safety will not be compromised.

For more information on exemptions see:
