Submission in Response to Work Health and Safety Bill 2011

    28 July 2011

    CropLife welcomes the opportunity to provide comment on the Work Health and Safety Bill 2011. 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.
