An unresolved WHS issue

If a matter about WHS arises at a workplace or from the conduct of a business or undertaking and the matter is not resolved after discussion between the involved parties, an inspector may be appointed to attend the workplace to help resolve the issue.

The parties must first make reasonable efforts to achieve a timely, final and effective resolution of the issue by discussion and the use of an agreed issue resolution procedure.

Details of the reasonable efforts that have been made to resolve the matter will be required when making a request that an inspector is appointed.
