I’m Michael - Editor-in-Chief of the Health & Safety Handbook.

It can be tough to be an employer in Australia – especially in high-risk industries – with the health and safety of your workers sitting squarely on your shoulders.

We developed the Health & Safety Handbook to make your difficult task as easy as possible, and help you keep your workers safe and stay out of the courts.

The Health & Safety Handbook will help you keep on top of work health and safety laws, no matter where your business operates.

We feature practical advice, valuable tips and vital information to allow you to tackle even the most difficult work health and safety issues in your workplace with absolute confidence.

Our guiding principle has always been to make the content as easy to understand as possible. Although we are lawyers, we don’t write with legal jargon.

With the Health & Safety Handbook, you can rest assured that you have everything you need to achieve legal compliance in your business right at your fingertips.
