Regulation & Guidelines for Tourism & Hospitality

The following sections of the Workers Compensation Act and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulation have been identified as being most relevant to your industry. Included are the general requirements that apply to all industrial workplaces as well as any specific requirements for your industry. However, other sections of the WCA or OHS Regulation may also apply to your workplace because hazards and tasks vary from workplace to workplace within the same industry. This compilation of relevant industry sections does not exempt you from other sections that apply to your workplace.

* See recent updates to the OHS Regulation and Guidelines.
