Safe Work Australia is calling for feedback on the model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Regulations relating to Major Hazard Facilities (MHFs).

The purpose of this consultation is to gather evidence to better understand stakeholder concerns with the model WHS Regulations in relation to MHFs. This will help us determine whether changes to the model WHS laws are required.

Submissions from all stakeholders who have an interest in MHFs are welcome. In particular, we would like to hear from operators of MHF facilities in Australia and Australian MHF regulators. Feedback from members of the community with a particular interest in MHFs in their local area is also welcome. 

Submissions are open until 11:59 pm (AEDT) Thursday 3 November 2022. Submissions can be made using Safe Work Australia’s online Engage consultation platform.

If you are unable to lodge your submission online or if you have any questions about the consultation, please email
