Summary: This form can be used by health and safety representatives to issue a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN).
About this form
Health and safety representatives (HSRs) have the power (s60) to issue a provisional improvement notice (PIN) if they believe on reasonable grounds that a OHS issue is a breach of the OHS Act or Regulations. A PIN is a written direction requiring a person to remedy the breach (or likely breach). Although it is not compulsory to use a form to issue a PIN, WorkSafe has produced this form to help HSRs provide all the relevant information that is required to issue a valid PIN. For further information on PINs refer to the WorkSafe publication Employee Representation: A comprehensive guide to Part 7 of the Occupational Health and safety Act 2004
