Draft Hazardous Substance Regulations

It’s got to the busy season again, and some of us are looking forward to a very ‘special’ Christmas Present – draft Hazardous Substances Regulations.  These have been expected to be released for consultation in November or December this year and now I hope they arrive nicely wrapped.  If you have hazardous substances of any sort, and want to have a say in the new regulations keep an eye for the consultation on these and make your submissions (WorkSafe have said that the consultation period will take the holiday period into account).  Chemsafety will certainly be reading them with a fine tooth comb, and will let you know what it all means.
