Have your say: Work Health and Safety Laws

| July 23, 2019

The 2018 Review found the model WHS laws are largely operating as intended, but identified some areas where stakeholders are experiencing confusion or consider the laws are overly complex. The 2018 Review report makes 34 recommendations to address these problems.

A Consultation Regulation Impact Statement (RIS) has been prepared seeking feedback on the impacts of implementing the recommendations and proposed alternative options for addressing the problems identified in the 2018 Review.

Submissions can be uploaded on the Safe Work Australia website until 11.59 pm (AEST) on Monday 5 August 2019.

Your views and supporting evidence on the anticipated impacts will be used to prepare a Decision RIS evaluating the costs and benefits of implementing the 2018 Review recommendations. The Decision RIS will be provided to WHS ministers to assist them to decide whether the Review recommendations should be implemented, and if so, how.
