WorkSafe VIC is running a series of information sessions throughout Victoria from Friday on national workplace health and safety laws.
The information sessions will explain how to make a submission to the Commonwealth on the proposed regulatory package released for public comment.
WorkSafe’s Executive Director for Health and Safety, Ian Forsyth said the public comment period was a great opportunity for Victorians to express their opinions on the model work health and safety Regulatory package.
"To ensure these new laws are relevant to Victorian workplaces, it’s important that industry, businesses and workers take this opportunity and have their say." Mr Forsyth said.
The model Work Health and Safety Act was endorsed by the Governments of all states, territories and the Commonwealth last year.
A new nationally harmonised system of workplace health and safety is scheduled to begin on 1 January 2012.
