Safe Work Australia is currently evaluating the Workplace exposure standards for airborne contaminants to ensure they are based on the highest quality evidence and supported by a rigorous scientific approach.
They are seeking public comments of a technical nature on the draft evaluation reports and recommendations for the workplace exposure standards (WES) throughout 2019, beginning with respirable crystalline silica and respirable coal dust.
The feedback they receive as part of this process will be considered when making final recommendations regarding the workplace exposure standards.
Interested stakeholders can provide their comments on the draft evaluation reports and recommendations for respirable crystalline silica and respirable coal dust via the consultation platform, Engage. Comments are due by 30 April 2019.
