The regulations relate to a range of subjects including, for example, specific requirements for specific types of workplaces (industrial establishments, construction sites, mines and health care facilities, farming operations), designated substances, and workplace hazardous materials.
Please note that in order to determine which regulatory requirements are applicable to you and your workplace, it is recommended that you check the e-Laws website.
