Guidelines to promote understanding of WHS Entry obligations

SafeWork SA has published new information and guidance about entry permit holders (EPH) that covers a range of topics, including entry requirements, WHS requirements, suspected contravention, rights of EPH and businesses, dispute resolution and behaviours.

The new guidance was published after SafeWork SA identified a lack of understanding about the rights and obligations of EPH, unions and businesses. SafeWork SA Executive Director Martyn Campbell said SafeWork SA’s role is not only as a safety regulator, but also to educate and inform. Campbell added that the new information will assist in providing clarity on expectations under the WHS Act.

“Our aim is that by providing guidance, we can work together with businesses and unions for a greater understanding of the roles we all have in creating safe workplaces for all South Australians,” Campbell said.
