Registration and Notification
Since 1 July 2014, you have not been required to register items of plant with WorkSafe or re-register every five years.
With advances in technology, WorkSafe is able to rely on other sources, including an extensive network of stakeholders and suppliers, for information about the location of plant in Victoria.
Please note: Under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004, employers must still provide or maintain plant or systems of work that are, so far as is reasonably practicable, safe and without risks to health.
An employer must keep a record of any inspection and maintenance carried out on plant specified in regulation 106 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 for the period that the employer or self-employed person has management or control of the plant.
Plant that required item registration until 1 July 2014 continues to be regulated by Part 3.5 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017
For plant specified in Schedule 2 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017, plant designs and designs that have been altered to the point that new control measures are necessary, must be registered with WorkSafe.
You must notify WorkSafe before undertaking certain activities. See the below link for further information.
