SA harmonisation breakthrough

26-Oct-2012

After months of talks, South Australia’s Labor government says it now has enough support to pass the nationally harmonised work health and safety legislation.

Premier Jay Weatherill says independent MP John Darley has agreed to join two other upper house minor party MPs to give the government the numbers to get the legislation through parliament.

The government says it has agreed with Darley on amendments to height limits, clarification on who has a duty of care, the right to silence and right of entry. Changes have also been made to training provisions to placate the Greens.

Industrial Relations Minister Russell Wortley says the national harmonised laws have been under development for more than two years and follow extensive public consultation.

Despite the SA breakthrough, the future of the nationally consistent laws remains in doubt, with Victoria already ruling out implementing the WHS Act, Queensland moving to rescind the laws adopted by the previous state government and WA delaying consideration until after the March election.
