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.
