VIC - WHS - Draft OHS Regulation Reform

WorkSafe Victoria is seeking feedback on new proposed Occupational Health and Safety Regulations, and Equipment (Public Safety) Regulations. The review aims to improve health and safety outcomes for workers, ensure that regulations align with areas of greatest risk, and streamline the regulations while maintaining current best practice, among other things. In addition to the new Regulations, updated Compliance Codes will also be issued (variants to Codes of Practice). WorkSafe has provided a summary of changes proposed to the OHS Regulations and the EPS Regulations. Comments close 9 September 2016.
