Summary

This report on OHS legal requirements focuses on three main types of legal requirements. First, it considers legislation: the mechanism that outlines the broad parameters that obligation bearers must follow. Second, it considers regulations that flesh out the general legislative duties and sets out detailed requirements placed upon obligation bearers. Finally, it examines the relevant case law, the judicial decisions that clarify and resolve the inevitable ambiguities in both legislation and regulations, and which interpret judicially, key phrases in these legal instruments. There is much to be learned from the experience of other countries, and those whose legal systems approximate to our own have by far the most to tell us. Consequently, for this Report, research on and findings about the international dimension has focused on the UK provisions because these resonate closely with those in Australia and reflect recent directives in the European Union, the European Union Directives because these represent crucial and up-to-date thinking within the European Community as a whole and, to a much lesser extent, selected North American provisions.nal cooperative
