All businesses, industry and workers who have not already had their
say should do so, according to Safe Work Australia Chair, Tom Phillips.
Safe Work Australia released draft model WHS Regulations, priority
model Codes of Practice, an Issues Paper and Consultation Regulation
Impact Statement for public comment in December 2010.
To date, Phillips said 234 submissions have been received from a broad
range of organisations and individuals, and all submissions can be
viewed on the Safe Work Australia website.
"Having your say in this process will ensure that businesses and
workers can understand these laws and ensure they are effective in
improving work health and safety outcomes," said Phillips.
Safe Work Australia will analyse the submissions received during the
public comment process and then revise the draft model WHS Regulations
and Codes of Practice based on this analysis.
