You have the right to a safe workplace. If the risk is serious, immediate and you are in danger, stop work and notify your employer of the risk.
Your boss is required to provide you with a safe place of work, and to consult with you about safety issues.
Did you know that if you�re an AMWU member, you can get a union representative to come to your worksite to inspect safety risks, and negotiate on your behalf with your boss?
Occupational health and safety requirements differ from State to State. For information and advice about your specific issue, contact the Helpdesk on 1300 732 698.
