John Hargreaves has announced the release of exposure draft regulations to flesh out the Work Safety Act 2008.
- “Introducing the Work Safety Act 2008 represents a major step in improving work safety outcomes. I now intend to introduce the first stage of the work safety regulations which will sit under the Act and provide additional detail on specific work safety issues, such as workplace arrangements, licensing high risk work and manual tasks at work.
“I invite all individuals and organisations to comment and make submissions on the draft regulations. Community views are important to ensure the new work safety legislation is effective, and responsive to the needs of the ACT workforce and business.”
Apparently they’ll be going online sometime today.
Comments will close Monday 20July 2009.
