We hope this finds you all well as we launch into spring. In this update, we cover safety legislative reforms and recent cases.

Psychological health has been the safety topic of interest and focus for clients recently, particularly given the proposed changes to the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2017 (Victoria). We have enjoyed conducting interactive training sessions with you on this important development over the last few months. Once these proposed regulations are finalised and in operation, we expect there will be activity with safety regulator site visits to check employers’ compliance with these new regulatory requirements.
