Workplace exposure standards framework consultation regulation impact statement released
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.
