Tooma's Annotated Work Health and Safety Act 2011 Second Edition provides an authoritative and easy-to-navigate, annotation of the national work health and safety (WH&S) law in Australia.

In this precise annotation of the uniform WH&S law, leading practitioner and experienced author, Michael Tooma, uses the New South Wales enactment of the model legislation as his basis, with comparative tables referencing the law in other jurisdictions.

Through his authoritative, section-by-section commentary, and analysis of the new duties and obligations, the author shares his insights into the how the national WH&S regime is developing.  

Michael Tooma draws on the latest case law to update the work with key developments since commencement of the uniform WH&S regime in 2011. These include decisions relating to:

  • New interpretations of how the duty to workers interacts with the duty to others.
  • Application of the general duty including a record penalty
  • Horizontal consultation obligation  
  • Definition of officer
  • Regulatory powers under s. 155 and s. 171

Judgements considered include WorkSafe v RowsonDPP v KidmanKenos ContractorsBoland v TAPSPerilya v NashHunter Quarries, and the Al-Hassani case.

For practitioners advising employers, or WH&S professionals in an office, project, factory, shop or store,  this work is the go-to resource.

Tooma's Annotated Work Health and Safety Act 2011 Second Edition equips practitioners and WHS professionals with the material required to understand and implement compliant WHS strategies, and to litigate on WHS issues in the courtroom.
