The infringement notice scheme will act as an additional deterrent and help keep Victorian employees safe.

The obligations of employers and other duty holders under OHS laws don’t change. Employers still have a duty to provide and maintain a working environment that’s safe and without risks to health so far as is reasonably practicable.

From 31 July 2021, WorkSafe inspectors can issue infringement notices with penalties of up to 10 penalty units, or $1817.40, attached.
