What is OHS?

OHS (sometimes called OH&S) stands for Occupational Health and Safety. OHS is the term used to cover all things related to the health and safety of employees within their place of work. OHS includes such issues as workplace hazards and various safety procedures among other things, and the aim of OHS is to ensure all workplaces are safe and healthy to work in. Each Australian state has its own OHS laws (and within each state, most industries have their own laws), so be sure to consult an employment lawyer about the laws pertaining to your industry.
