New work health and safety legislation introduced in the Legislative Assembly which will be debated over the coming months, will require more worker training and consultation on construction sites over $5million in the ACT.

The Work Health and Safety Amendment Bill 2018 which is expected to come into effect on January 1, 2019 will require employers to establish work groups in consultation with eligible unions and organise the election of Health and Safety Representatives, establish a Health and Safety Committee and ensure Health and Safety Committee members have received the necessary training.

The new legislation exceeds what is provided for in the national harmonised Workplace Health and Safety laws, raising the standard of communication and consultation on health and safety in the construction industry.
