Keneally right on workplace safety laws: Bandt

Greens MP Adam Bandt has backed a NSW government push to retain important occupational health and safety protections threatened by uniform national laws.

“The Greens support the move to uniform national laws for workplace safety, but this should not come at the expense of existing protections”, Mr Bandt said.

“The right to prosecute and the requirement for employers to show they have fulfilled their ‘duty of care’ are important aspects of the OHS regime that has been hard won by workers in NSW.”

“We will look at the Commonwealth health and safety legislation, as we do all legislation, and evaluate it on its merits when it comes before Parliament.”

“But as much as possible, we must avoid moving to the lowest common denominator in these discussions,” he concluded.
