WHS Legislation

The BIA conducted a research project into WHS Best Practice. The WorkCover-funded exercise commenced January 2010, and engaged around 70 BIA members through workshops, interviews and site visits.

A substantial Project Report was produced, along with detailed Guidance Material designed to assist members with four key areas of risk which challenge the boating industry in both practice and compliance management.
