WHS guidance for the labour hire industry

The guide, Labour hire: duties of persons conducting a business or undertaking, is now available.

It provides information for persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) in labour hire arrangements on complying with their health and safety duties under the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws.

The guide has practical information for labour hire and host PCBUs on their roles before and during the placement of labour hire workers.

There are new practical examples and guidance on the duty of host and labour hire PCBUs to consult, cooperate and coordinate.

Businesses using or providing labour hire should read the guide for information about their WHS responsibilities.

More information is available on the Safe Work Australia website
