The public comment period on the national draft model Work Health and Safety Regulations and priority Codes of Practice closes on April 4.

The Federal Government plans to develop and implement one set of work health and safety laws, scheduled to come into effect on January 1, next year.

One set of work health and safety laws will ensure there is a consistently high level of protection in the workplace for all Australians and, over time, reduce compliance burdens for business.

The model Work Health and Safety Act was endorsed last year. Now the draft model Work Health and Safety Regulations and priority Codes of Practice are available for public comment.

Public submissions can be emailed to:
submissions@safeworkaustralia.gov.au

Submissions can also be mailed to:
Safe Work Australia
GPO Box 641
Canberra ACT 2601

Public submissions must include a Public Comment Cover Sheet and a Public Comment Response Form, both available from: safeworkaustralia.gov.au

More information on the model regulations package and the submissions process can be found under Public Comment on the Safe Work Australia website.

Questions on the model regulations package can be emailed to:
model.legislation@safeworkaustralia.gov.au
