Submission to the Senate Committee Inquiry into the health and safety of workers in the offshore petroleum industry

AREEA provided this submission to the Senate Education and Employment References Committee’s Inquiry into the Work Health and Safety of Workers in the Offshore Petroleum Industry.

AREEA outlined its submission that we do not consider there is evidentiary support for any further alignment between the OPGGS Act and the WHS, and that the OPGGS Act should not be amended to include union right of entry provisions as contained in the model WHS Act.

AREEA supported the view put in other submissions from operators in the industry that the OPGGS Act is robust and suitable to the offshore industry and NOPSEMA applies it in an effective and accountable manner.

This was further reinforced by AREEA’s appearance before the Senate Committee in June.
