Compliance code: Lead – Response to public comment

WorkSafe consulted stakeholders and the public when developing the Lead compliance code.


What it contains

Feedback and engagement from our stakeholders has played a vital part in making sure the Lead compliance code provides practical guidance for those who have duties or obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 and the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017, in relation to exposure to lead in the workplace.

In November 2021 the code was available for public comment for a period of 28 days. WorkSafe received one submission which it considered and responded to before finalising the code.

This document covers the consultation process, and summarises the matters raised in the public comment submission and WorkSafe's responses to these, including how they have informed the code.
