Occupational Health and Safety

Position

There should be practical and clear safety solutions for industry. There should also be consistent compliance laws across industry to create a level playing field for automotive businesses.

Health and Safety legislation should facilitate safety requirements for industry, in order to produce real safety outcomes that will work to prevent a Health and Safety incident.

There should be production of industry-led safety standards with the acknowledgement of the regulator.

Health and Safety requirements should be implemented consistently across the industry, so that there is a level playing field for businesses.

Health and Safety legislation should deliver real safety outcomes, not safety provisions that produce red tape.

 

Recommendations

  • There should be continued consultation and collaboration between Worksafe and industry bodies. In essence, industry must be consulted prior to any changes towards OHS compliance and regulation.
