Information, training and instruction

Among other things, you must give your workers information, training, instruction or supervision to protect them and others from any workplace health and safety risks.

Must do’s

There are specific laws about the information, training and instruction that you must give to your workers and others to help them remain healthy and safe in the workplace. Here we summarise those laws and give you some practical advice.

You must give enough relevant information, training and instruction about the work, the risks and the measures in place to control those risks – and it must be easy to understand.

For the specific laws about information, training and instruction, see clause 39 of the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011.

There are also general work health and safety laws that will apply to you in any situation, including with regards to information, training and instruction.
