New national work health and safety regulations come into effect on January 1 2012 in Australia.
Changes to legislation have created a mountain of red tape for South Australian businesses.
Jean Cannon, owner of Enviro Action, a business education group, is running workshops to help businesses understand the new laws with minimal cost.
“I now run the majority of my management systems consultancy online,” said Cannon. “This means that I can assist more clients and keep the costs right down.”
Cannon is hopeful that her workshops will ease frustrations for state businesses so they do not fall foul of regulators.
