Legislation Updates

WorkSafe has recently refined its guidelines on worker engagement, participation, and representation. This is in tune with the legislative changes made earlier this year.

The changes include:

  • If a worker asks for a Health and Safety Representative, the business must initiate an election. Previously, smaller businesses in sectors that were not prescribed high-risk could decline these requests.

  • If a Health and Safety Representative, or five or more workers, ask for a Health and Safety Committee, the business must establish one. Previously, a business could refuse a request to establish a committee where the business is satisfied existing practices sufficiently meet the requirements.

The Act does not make Health and Safety Representatives or Health and Safety Committees mandatory for businesses. Businesses will only be required to initiate an election for representatives or establish a committee where workers request them.
