About this Unit
From 2014 this unit will be replaced by 200799 Work Health and Safety Law. This unit examines major occupational and health legislation in Australia, especially in New South Wales. The arbitrary and inadequate nature of standard setting in the early systems of safety regulation is compared with later legislative models. The nature and limitations of current legislative strategies are illustrated by a series of selected issues relating to contemporary health risks in workplaces. Continuing problems of enforcement, sanctions and the adequate identification of hazards and protection are examined.
