Work Health and Safety (Amendment) Review Bill 2019

The Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation has introduced the Work Health and Safety Amendment (Review) Bill 2019 seeking to expedite implementation in NSW of proposals based on recommendations from the 2018 Review of the model WHS laws, undertaken by Ms Marie Boland.

The proposed amendments to the Act seek to address the ongoing issue of workplace deaths, strengthen support for the families of workplace victims, streamline investigations and give workers and businesses greater clarity on aspects of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011.

To support the development of the Bill, the Department prepared a Better Regulation Statement which outlines how the proposed amendments to the  Work Health and Safety Act 2011 comply with the NSW Government’s Better Regulation principles.
