New guidance: Powers of HSR's

News announcement - Published 23 January, 2020

NOPSEMA has released new guidance on the Powers of Health & Safety Representatives.

The guidance seeks to explain the powers of HSR’s under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 and how HSRs may exercise these powers. It also seeks to assist facility operators and employers in meeting their legal obligations for HSRs.

NOPSEMA would like to thank the HSR's who provided comment on the draft guidance, in addition to the Australian Petroleum Production and Exploration Association and the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science. A number of suggestions were incorporated into the guidance.
