Govt to review OHS Accreditation Scheme

24 March, 2014

The Commonwealth government is undertaking a targeted review of the Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme), administered by the Federal Safety Commissioner.

The government supports continuation of the Scheme but has established the review to identify specific options to reduce red tape and compliance costs, without compromising safety outcomes. The review is expected to be completed by 30 June 2014.

The industry is invited to make submissions on the issues raised in a discussion paper available here.

Submissions should be provided as early as possible but no later than 4 April 2014 to ofscreview@employment.gov.au. Enquiries about the review can be made by email to the same address, or by phone to 1800 652 500.
