Subscribe to the News RSS feed

Safe Work  Australia has published a consultation regulation impact statement  (consultation RIS) for the workplace exposure standards framework. The  consultation RIS will assist Work Health and Safety ministers to determine the  impact of, and best way to implement an update to the workplace exposure  standards. It also explores if the workplace exposure standards should remain  mandatory under the model WHS laws or if advisory status is more appropriate.

The  consultation RIS is seeking submissions from workers, duty holders, regulators,  government departments, unions, members of the public and other parties that  have an interest in, or use, store, handle, generate, or dispose of hazardous  chemicals or substances that can become airborne.

The  consultation RIS has been published on the SWA website https://engage.swa.gov.au/cris-workplace-exposure-standards and will be open for six weeks, closing on 13 September 2018.
