Consultation regulation impact statement: Workplace exposure standards

The Workplace exposure standards framework under the model work health and safety laws consultation regulation impact statement (consultation RIS), was developed to determine the impact of, and best way to implement, an update to Australia’s workplace exposure standard framework.

The consultation RIS outlined and tested the current state of knowledge regarding the costs and benefits of the status quo, and presented potential options to address the problems identified with the current workplace exposure standard framework.

It also explored whether the workplace exposure standards should remain mandatory under the model Work Health and Safety laws or if advisory status is more appropriate.

Thank you to everyone who provided a written submission or participated in targeted consultation with PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).
