NEW PUBLIC REGISTER FOR ASBESTOS, HIGH RISK AND MAJOR HAZARD FACILITY LICENCES
From 1 February 2021, anyone with a licence for asbestos removal (class A and B), asbestos assessment, high risk work and major hazard facilities will have their licence details published on WorkSafe ACT’s online register.
Anyone with these licence types, who receives certain types of infringements, will also have their infringement details published online.
Details of which infringements and the type of information that will be published online are available in the guidelines on the ACT Legislation Registration website.
Once published, any details of infringement notices will remain on the register for two years from the date of the offence, or for five years if the licence holder receives more than two infringement notices within 24 months.
These changes are being implemented to encourage licence holders to comply with work health and safety regulations and better protect the health and safety of workers and our community.
More information will be available on the WorkSafe ACT website soon.
