- a statement of the agency’s commitment to occupational safety and health and injury management with an emphasis on executive commitment
- a description of the formal mechanism for consultation with employees on occupational safety and health matters
- a statement of compliance with injury management requirements of the Workers’ Compensation and Injury Management Act 1981, including the development of return to work plans
- a statement confirming that an assessment of the occupational safety and health management system has been completed (within the past five years or sooner, depending on the risk profile of the agency) using a recognised assessment tool
- a report of the percentage of agreed actions completed following assessment of the occupational safety and health system
- a report of performance against the targets for fatalities, lost time injury and disease, return to work, and training of managers and supervisors
