Proposed Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 and Equipment (Public Safety) Regulations 2017: Response to public comment


What it contains

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.
