A statutory review of the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 commenced on 1 July 2014.  RSC Advising Pty Ltd was successful at tender and will be the independent consultant undertaking the review.

The review is a requirement of s277 of the WHS Act and will inquire into the operation of the Act as well as providing a specific report on the extent to which inspectors have attended workplaces under the right of entry provisions.

The review will examine the impact of the legislation in a South Australian context, as well as to ensure the continued effectiveness of nationally harmonised work health and safety laws in the state.
