A WHS Policy template is an essential set of regulations and procedures that guide your employees on how they should conduct themselves while performing their duties to protect themselves and their co-workers from injury and harm and to remain compliant with relevant legislation. Each Australian state prescribes its own legislated workplace health and safety framework which business and business owners will need to comply with and demonstrate via their WHS Policy. This WHS Policy comes with a Hazard Incident Report Form for employees and contractors, so you can effectively document incidents that may occur at your business. These report forms can be useful for insurance purposes or in a legal dispute.

Document details

This WHS Policy template provides comprehensive and fully functioning guidelines and procedures for your employees to understand the expectations around their behaviour towards workplace health and safety.

This WHS Policy template includes:

  • Overview, scope, policy administrations, objective and compliance with the Law
  • Management responsibilities
  • Worker responsibilities
  • Organisation Policies and Procedures

This policy also includes the following additional documentation:

  • Hazard Incident Report Form for Employees
  • Hazard Incident Report Form for Contractors

Other key policies can be found under the Business Policies category.

Why does your business need a Workplace Health and Safety Policy?

The consequences for not complying with the applicable legislation can be serious, for example in Queensland a corporate organisation which fails to comply with a ‘health and safety duty or electrical safety duty’ can be fined up to $500,000.

In addition to ensuring that your business complies with its legal obligations, having a WHS Policy template is also beneficial to the day-to-day operations of your business in the following ways:

  • clearly defines the roles and responsibilities of the employer and employees in maintaining a safe workplace;
  • serves as evidence that your business is taking health and safety serious, which eases the concerns of both employees and potential clients;
  • increases efficiency as the pre-existing policy template can be filled out quickly and easily in the event of a workplace health and safety issue or event.

Lastly, a WHS Policy can also be crucial to defending your business in the event a claim is made against you (or your company) for failing to comply with workplace health and safety obligations, in the event an employee, contractor or visitor is injured. The WHS Policy can be used to demonstrate that your business took reasonable steps to mitigate risk and prevent the incident from occurring. We suggest you purchase Business Kitz Workplace Health and Safety Policy to aid in compliance with your obligations.
