OHS Regulations Reform

Victoria’s Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 (OHS Regulations) and Equipment (Public Safety) Regulations 2007 (EPS Regulations) will expire in June 2017.

WorkSafe Victoria (WorkSafe) is required to review and remake the OHS and EPS Regulations by this date.

It’s proposed to make changes that streamline and modernise the content of the Regulations, to better reflect current Victorian work practices.

Draft OHS Regulations, draft EPS Regulations, and Regulatory Impact Statement were made available for public comment from 18 July to 9 September 2016.

WorkSafe will consider and respond to all public comments before finalising the OHS and EPS Regulations.

New OHS and EPS Regulations will be made before the current regulations sunset in June 2017 and will support Victoria's position as having the safest workplaces in Australia.
