WHS self assessment tool

We've developed a WHS self-assessment tool that allows you to assess your current safety compliance against key regulatory requirements through an easy-to-use questionnaire. As you progress through each question it will identify whether there are any areas of non-compliance that need actioning.

The self-assessment specifically focuses on 13 key aspects of safety compliance and doesn't assess overall compliance with all health and safety legislation.

Once you've completed the questionnaire, it's important that you look further into whether you're complying with your legal obligations. You can do this by contacting our safety experts for advice and guidance on how you can improve health and safety at your workplace.
