  1. Had a fairly quick read of the issues paper. I plan to do a submission. Fifteen years either writing or supervising the writing of Victoria’s OHS laws, 3 years heading up the guidance material writing unit at WorkSafe Victoria and now about 4 years working in my own OHS business has me more than interested in the outcome of this review.

    An initial unsettling feeling I got from the issues paper is the sense that the review group may be looking to throw everything on the table. I got the impression that the terms of reference were fundamentally about finding out what good stuff is already in place and how do we get to a national OHS Act that is a of “best of the best” national OHS law. Lots of the prompt questions in the issues paper don’t seem to have that flavour.
