Postby Vested Utility » Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:41 am

Consultation on the Occupational Safety and Health and Electricity Licensing Amendment (Live Work) Regulations 2017

Draft amendments to the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 and the Electricity (Licensing) Regulations 1991 are now available for comment.

Accompanying the consultation draft are:

Explanatory notes providing specific information about the intent of each change and how the regulation might affect your business; and
a draft copy of the Code of Practice - Work on or near energised electrical installations.
The changes are consistent with best work practice and similar to regulations and provisions operating in New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland and Tasmania which adopted the Model Work, Safety and Health legislation.

Your comments on the draft amendments to the legislation and the Code of Practice would be appreciated.

The closing date for comments is 5pm on Friday 31 March 2017.
