WorkSafe has signed up to the National Statement of Regulatory Intent, with all other work health and safety regulators (except Victoria) during the COVID-19 pandemic.

This statement sets out the enforcement approach that WorkSafe and these other regulators will take to ensure compliance with work health and safety laws during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We recognise that the COVID-19 pandemic has created an exceptional set of circumstances and will have significant impacts on employers, workers, officers and other persons with duties under the work health and safety laws.
