Work Health and Safety
The Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Act 2011 (‘the WH&S Act’) commenced in the Northern Territory on 1 January 2012. The WH&S Act provides the framework for health and safety compliance for businesses in the NT.
To assist our members with their compliance under the WH&S Act, the AHA (NT) has developed the following resources:
(1) AHA (NT) Work Safe Manual
The comprehensive AHA (NT) Work Safe Manual was recently updated in 2015 and contains important and practical information on work health and safety for all levels of management and staff working in the hospitality industry. The Manual also provides a variety of templates that members should individualise to their workplace environment, which include:

(2) General advice on workplace health and safety queries
As is the case with industrial relations advice, members of the AHA (NT) are able to contact the office with any general questions about their work health and safety obligations.
The work health and safety resources are available on the terms and understanding that the AHA (NT) is not responsible for the results of any action taken on the basis of information in the work health and safety resources nor for any error in or omission from the work health and safety resources. The information contained in the work health and safety resources are of a general nature and must be adapted to your particular circumstances.
To the extent permitted by law, no warranty, representation or undertaking (express or implied), is given by AHA (NT) or its affiliates, officers, employees or agents to any party in relation to the accuracy or completeness of information contained in the work health and safety resources or its fitness for any purpose at all.
