Abstract Occupational health and safety (OHS) in each of the Australian jurisdictions is regulated by legislation based on the 1972 British Robens Report. This article describes the form of OHS regulation that preceded the Robens reforms and outlines and critically evaluates the Robens recommendations. It examines the provisions of the post-Robens Australian OHS statutes and concludes that, despite its flaws, the Robens model has provided a platform for OHS regulation to meet the needs of the 21st century.
