Welcome to Bill Fitzgerald & Associates Occupational Health & Safety Services

Bill Fitzgerald, the principal occupational health and safety consultant started this work health and safety business in 2013. He is known across a range of industries – particularly in public and private health industry safety. Having been a work safety consultant and professional for over 30 years he has delivered small business safety, compensation premium management and OHS training to people from all industries as an OHS generalist.


OHS Editorial Experience includes


Extensive Exposure to OHS and WHS Legislation

in the Commonwealth and every state and territory – current and pre-harmonisation – since 1988.



Compensation Claims and premium management

and return to work in every jurisdiction – since 1988.


Employment and consultancy work

in Commonwealth, State regulator, insurer, large company, small and medium enterprises.



Tertiary qualifications

including research into the safety related needs of Small and Medium business.

Acting as a National OHS Manager of national organisations with multiple sites in all states (and overseas) he has a wealth of knowledge not only of the health industry but of OHS, compensation and insurance arrangements applying in all Australian jurisdictions.

That same exposure also included a portfolio of smaller operations throughout mainland Australia – micro and small businesses operating within the larger corporate umbrella – similar in operation to a franchise model. He therefore has developed a national understanding of the challenges that harmonisation and OHS legislation pose for small business and has built safety systems that are specifically designed for the small business environment.
