What is a breach
If you do not fulfil or if you breach your statutory duties or obligations under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012, WorkSafe Tasmania may initiate prosecution proceedings.
A breach occurs when the law is not upheld; when:
- an action is taken that places a person at risk of injury, illness or death
- steps are not taken to avoid a risky situation from occurring
- there is a failure to comply with regulatory requirements.
