In this edition of Regulation at Work we present the regular updates on Developments in regulation, Key research and reports and Key cases. We also include a feature article summarising the Second Report of the National Review into Model Occupational Health and Safety Laws. This is part of the current commitment by all Commonwealth, State and Territory governments in Australia to harmonise OHS Acts, regulations and codes of practice. The Second Report provides a further 158 recommendations for consideration by the Workplace Relations Ministers Council, for the national model OHS Act.
