- Introduced with the Work Health and Safety (Transitional and Consequential Provisions) Bill 2011, the bill implements the Model Work Health and Safety Bill (the model bill) within the Commonwealth jurisdiction to form part of a system of nationally harmonised occupational health and safety laws which will apply to businesses and undertakings conducted by the Commonwealth, public authorities, and transitionally, non-Commonwealth licensees. State and territory governments, together with the Commonwealth, signed the Intergovernmental Agreement for Regulatory and Operational Reform in Occupational Health and Safety which commits the jurisdictions to implement the model laws by December 2011.
