This is a study of enforcement of occupational health and safety laws in Australia. To date the agencies with primary responsibility for this enforcement have been in the states and territories. Our purpose in this research is to provide information and policy analysis which might in some small way be useful to those state and territory agencies which wish to do their job better.
