The Workplace Health and Safety Regulations will take effect on June 12, 2013. They contain the new and amended requirements for fall protection, rope access work, scaffolding, occupational health and temporary workplaces on highways and will replace the current Blasting Safety Regulations, Fall Protection and Scaffolding Regulations, Occupational Safety General Regulations and Temporary Workplace Traffic Control Regulations. Eventually all OHS regulations, except the Underground Mining Regulations, will become part of the WHS regulations.
