Draft Model Work Health and Safety Submission

    4 April 2011

    CropLife welcomes the opportunity to provide comment on the Model Work Health and Safety Regulations and Codes of Practice. Our members consider that nationally consistent work health safety laws are critical to delivering better workplace safety outcomes, while removing unjustified and costly interstate differences in regulation. CropLife has long supported measures that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Australia’s regulatory system.  Consequently, measures to harmonise Australia’s workplace health and safety systems are very welcome, potentially reducing the administrative and regulatory burden on Australian businesses that operate across state boundaries.
