Occupational health and safety legislation

Overview

Past project: In 2007, the Government commissioned an administrative review of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.


Working Together for Safer, Healthier Workplaces are administrative and legislative reforms that provide employees and employers with more support on health and safety. They also address the social and economic cost of work-related deaths, injuries and illness.

In 2007, the then Minister for Finance, WorkCover and TAC, Mr Tim Holding MP, commissioned Mr Bob Stensholt MP to chair an administrative review of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.

Mr Stensholt completed his review and presented his report to Minister Holding in December 2007. The Government released its response to his recommendations on 17 June 2008.
