Workplace health and safety laws on domestic commercial vessels

Wednesday 8 July 2020
If you work in the maritime industry you should be familiar with the work health and safety (WHS) laws of the state or territory that you are working in.

Some work activities on board your vessel may need to comply with the various WHS laws and codes of practice.

Meeting AMSA’s requirements does not automatically mean that your operation is compliant with WHS laws, and vice versa. 

Your local WHS regulator can be contacted for further information about the requirements of the WHS laws on your vessel.
