What it contains

In 2006, WorkSafe commissioned the Australian Centre for Research in Employment at Work to examine good OHS practices at labour hire companies. This document outlines successful OHS case studies to help agencies develop stronger OHS practices. Case studies include:

  • a labour hire agency in hospitality and events management
  • a labour hire agency in large-scale industry
  • a small specialist labour hire agency
  • a large labour hire agency
  • a host employer that is a city municipal council
  • a regional host employer
  • labour hire employees on a permit-controlled site
  • induction of a nurse from a nursing agency

At the end of the document, there is also information about good OHS and return to work practices in labour hire.
