Work health and safety (WHS) law is a complex and dynamic area of law that applies to almost every workplace in Queensland. Non-compliance with duties under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) can result in significant human, reputational and financial loss.
The WHS Act provides for specific categories of criminal offences for breaches of health and safety duties. The penalties for offences under the WHS Act include significant fines and, in certain cases, imprisonment.
