WORKPLACE HEALTH & SAFETY – COMPULSORY WORKPLACE NOTICE

In February 2017 the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (“SIRA”) published a poster (“If you get injured at work”). This poster must be displayed in every workplace otherwise you could be liable for a hefty penalty. The poster must be displayed where all workers can read it.

Some states have specific requirements as to what is required to be displayed in the workplace, while others don’t. South Australia, Western Australia, Northern Territory and Queensland don’t have any specific requirements but if you are in one of those locations we recommend displaying a checklist of what to do when you are injured at work.
