All Australian workplaces are required to adhere to the WHS Act requirements. Your employees must understand the duties of your organisation and themselves in managing risks to provide a safe workplace. While at work they must take reasonable care of their own health and safety, take reasonable care of the health and safety of others and comply with any reasonable instructions, policies and procedures given by their employer at the workplace.
