- organisations to take a constructive role in promoting improvements in WHS practices
- promoting the provision of advice, information, education and training for WHS
- securing compliance with the Act through effective and appropriate compliance and enforcement measures
- ensuring appropriate scrutiny and review of actions taken by persons with powers or functions under the Act
- providing a framework for continuous improvement
