NSW has enacted the Work Health & Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) as part of a national agreement to provide consistency in health & safety law across all Australian jurisdictions. The WHS commenced on January 1 2012.
Under the new law a worker will include anyone who carries out work in a workplace such as: contractors, employees of a labour hire company, apprentices or trainees, students gaining work experience and volunteers as well as 'plain' employees.
