WHS governance

Roads and Maritime WHS governance arrangements establish clear expectations around responsibilities and accountabilities, sound decision making processes and how WHS information is communicated.

Leadership, due diligence, accountability, decision-making and oversight, are key principles of WHS governance, enabling realisation of the following benefits:

  • Enhanced organisational safety performance
  • Effective WHS risk management
  • Demonstrated compliance with, and discharge of, legal obligations
  • Benchmarking of accountability and other safety performance measures
  • Demonstrated safety leadership and ethical behaviour
  • Strengthened relationships with industry partners, stakeholders and the community

Enhanced safety reputation as a result of transparency and accountability.
