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 an even 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.
