Informal release of documents and information application

Use this form to request information from WorkSafe under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.


Information about the form

For information to be released through this process, the applicant must be a prescribed person.

A prescribed person is:

  • a representative of an organisation representing employers or employees,
  • an authorised representative of a registered employee organisation (ARREO),
  • a person whose interests are affected by the information to which they seek access.

WorkSafe may require further information from the applicant to verify their identity and confirm the applicant is a prescribed person. If the applicant does not provide sufficient information to demonstrate the above criteria, the application may be denied and the applicant referred to WorkSafe's Freedom of Information team.

A separate application is required for each WorkSafe inspector site visit, unless multiple site visits relate to the same health and safety issue.
