At risk workers

Our workforce is diverse, made up of people of different ages and cultures, with different skills and experience, who work under different employment arrangements. It is important that work health and safety strategies take this diversity into account.

If you’re an employer, this includes providing the appropriate level of information, induction, training and supervision for your workers and talking with them on work health and safety. To understand your legal obligations, check out simple safety - we have summarised them in simple, plain English. This information can be translated into a range of languages by selecting the language at the top of this page.

If you’re a worker, you also have a responsibility to take care of yourself and others around you. We have a your rights at work fact sheet which explains the basic responsibilities of the worker and the employer. We also have this fact sheet in other languages.

We are committed to accessibility and will develop accessible materials relevant to different cultures, languages and literacy levels.
