Notices: in general

If an inspector forms a reasonable belief that sections of the Act have been contravened, are being contravened, or could be contravened, they can issue a written notice.

You must display this notice:

  • as soon as possible
  • in a prominent position at the affected workplace area (for example, on a noticeboard)
  • while in force - it must not intentionally be removed, destroyed, damaged or defaced.

An injunction may be sought from the Magistrates Court to compel compliance with an inspector’s notice or restrain a person from contravening the notice.
