Occupational Health and Safety reform
2009 Safe Work Australia - National Harmonisation of OHS Laws
In July 2008, the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) formally committed to the harmonisation of OHS legislation by signing an Intergovernmental Agreement for Regulatory and Operational Reform in Occupational Health and Safety.
In late 2009, the public was given an opportunity to provide comments on draft legislation. PilchConnect provided the following submission to the review which focussed on the rights and liabilities of volunteers and community organisations under the proposed model.
