Have your say: Proposed Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Regulation 2022

The exposure draft of the proposed Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Regulation 2022 is now available for public comment.

The proposed Regulation will re-make the existing Work Health and Safety (Mines and Petroleum Sites) Regulation 2014 with some amendments, as part of the staged repeal of statutory rules under the Subordinate Legislation Act 1989.

The object of the proposed Regulation is to make provision about the health and safety of workers at mine and petroleum sites. A regulatory impact statement (RIS) has been prepared examining the need for the proposed Regulation and its costs and benefits.

The proposed Regulation and RIS are currently on public exhibition and are available for inspection on our consultation webpage.

MEG invites written comments and submissions on the proposed Regulation and RIS, which can be submitted to

The closing date for comments and submissions is Friday 8 July 2022.
