Accessibility Statement

At the Health and Safety Authority (HSA), we recognise the importance of ensuring that our website is accessible to the widest possible range of visitors.

We are committed to achieving a minimum of  conformance level Double-A with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and complying with the National Disability Authority IT Accessibility Guidelines.

Improving accessibility has been a priority in the redevelopment of the HSA website since 2007. Some legacy content - particularly documents - may not yet meet our accessibility targets, but we we intend to rectify this as resources permit.

If you encounter difficulties in accessing our site, please let us know.

Our website contains a number of features to enhance accessibility. Among them are:

  • Link to skip to main content in the header of each page
  • Valid HTML and cascading style sheets
  • Descriptive Alt texts for images that convey information and null alt text for decorative images
  • An alternative, high-contrast style sheet
  • A number of pdf documents (Some of our forms require the latest download of Adobe Reader)
