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.
