Victoria is one of two jurisdictions that have not adopted model WHS legislation. 

In a report to OHS Alert, Victoria's Shadow WorkCover and Industrial Relations Ministers, have stated that if Labor is successful at the November 2014 election they will not be adopting harmonised WHS laws while a Federal Coalition is in power as they “don't trust the Federal Government to [uphold] legislation that's going to maintain the safety standards [currently in] Victoria”.
