Other Australasia safety reporting systems

CROSS-AUS welcomes reports about structural safety issues related to buildings and other structures in the built environment. You can find out more on our reporting to CROSS-AUS page.

There are a number of other safety reporting systems for the built environment in Australia and New Zealand in addition to CROSS-AUS.


Workplace Health and Safety (WHS)

Safe Work Australia (SWA) is an Australian government statutory body established in 2008 to develop national policy relating to WHS and workers’ compensation. SWA does not regulate WHS laws. The Commonwealth, states and territories retain responsibility for regulating and enforcing WHS laws in their jurisdictions.

Find our more about incident reporting with SWA.

WorkSafe New Zealand is New Zealand’s primary workplace health and safety regulator.

Building control departments

In Australia, each state and territory government is responsible for regulating building and construction in their jurisdiction. If you are aware of a dangerous building or structure, you can contact your local government / council about it.

In New Zealand, the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment is the steward of New Zealand's building and construction regulatory system.


Oil & gas

Safer Together is a not-for-profit, member-led organisation of oil and gas exploration and production industry operating companies and contract partner companies committed to creating the leadership and collaboration needed to build a strong and consistent safety culture in our rapidly evolving industry.


Accreditation services

In Australia, the National Association of Testing Authorities, Australia (NATA) is Australia’s national accreditation body for the accreditation of laboratories, inspection bodies, calibration services, producers of certified reference materials and proficiency testing scheme providers throughout Australia.

International Accreditation New Zealand (IANZ) is the accreditation body of the Testing Laboratory Registration Council in New Zealand. It is an autonomous Crown entity established by the Testing Laboratory Registration Council Act, 1972.
