Exposure drafts of phase one regulations

This exposure draft process is taking place before the remaining phase one Health and Safety at Work regulations are finalised, to ensure they are fit for purpose and technically accurate. We want to get expert stakeholder feedback, primarily using the representative groups established by WorkSafe, on whether the decisions already made by the government are accurately represented in the draft regulations. The exposure draft process also enables us to consult further on specific elements of the regulations that the government has not yet made final decisions about. Any other interested party is also welcome to provide feedback on the exposure drafts.

Consultation has closed on the draft Regulations for work involving hazardous substances. These will be finalised later this year.

We are now seeking feedback on options for fees and/or levies to recover more directly from operators WorkSafe New Zealand’s costs of regulating major hazard facilities.
