WorkSafe consulted stakeholders and the public when developing the OHS Regulations 2017. This document covers the consultation process, the feedback received, and the changes WorkSafe made as a result.
The Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 and Equipment (Public Safety) Regulations 2007 expired in June 2017. WorkSafe Victoria undertook a process to review and remake these Regulations and draft replacements.
These drafts were released for public comment from 18 July until 9 September 2016. This document summarises the matters raised in public comment and WorkSafe’s responses to these, including how they informed the final OHS Regulations 2017.
