1 August 2021 sees a updated OHS regulations coming into effect in Victoria. WorkSafe will focus on infringement notices, rather than prosecution for certain prescribed offences.

For spotters there are 2 important compliance requirements that could be subject to the penalties:

  1. A copy of the SWMS to be kept for the duration of the high-risk construction work.
  2. Construction induction card to be kept available
