Labour Hire

Labour hire (or on-hire) involves a host employer engaging, on a temporary basis, a labour hire employee through an agency.

The labour hire agency is the employer.

Both the agency and the host employer have responsibilities for the health and safety of the employee. This guide will help you understand how to meet those health and safety responsibilities.

This also applies to group training organisations which employ apprentices and trainees and on-hire them to a host employer.
