Occupational Health Safety & Welfare (OHS&W)

Ensuring the health, safety and well-being of all staff is an essential goal of workforce development. Employers and employees obligations concerning workplace health and safety vary across jurisdictions.

For more information on workplace OHS&W across different jurisdictions see the following websites:

One important issue concerning the health and wellbeing of AOD workers is stress and burnout.  For more information on this topic see the Worker Wellbeing page of this website.

Further information concerning specific OHS&W issues facing the AOD workforce can be obtained from the Victorian Council of Social Service Occupational Health and Safety for Community Organisations website and the Victorian Drug and Alcohol Association Sector OHS website.

Sample OHS&W policies can be found at the Our Community Policy Bank website and the ACT Council of Social Service Organisations Information Kit website.
