Thank you to everyone who participated in the public consultation process, which is now closed.
We received 31 submissions from WHS regulators, government, industry and industry groups, unions, professionals and other interested or affected people.
A consultation summary and the submissions received are now available to read on our consultation platform, Engage.
The feedback received will be used to inform the decision regulation impact statement to be released in early 2019.
The Consultation regulation impact statement: Workplace exposure standards framework under the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) laws was prepared to assist WHS ministers to determine the impact of, and best way to implement, an update to the workplace exposure standards. It also explores if the workplace exposure standards should remain mandatory under the model WHS laws or if advisory status is more appropriate.
