Safe Work Australia is evaluating the Workplace Exposure Standards for airborne contaminants to ensure they are based on the highest quality, contemporary evidence and supported by a rigorous scientific approach.
Draft evaluation reports and recommendations for each chemical will be made available for public comment throughout 2019-2020.
The anticipated schedule for public comment is now available on Safe Work Australia’s website.
The next scheduled release is 30 August 2019 and will contain draft evaluation reports and recommendations for acetaldehyde to benzoyl chloride.
