WorkSafe has granted an exemption to Rockgas Limited and Orsan Enterprises Limited from compliance with Regulation 11.21 of the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017.
The application to grant an exemption has been decided as follows:
The exemption is granted by WorkSafe in accordance with section 220 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 on the basis that WorkSafe is satisfied that:
- the extent of the exemption is not broader than is reasonably necessary to address the matters that gave rise to it; and
- the exemption is not inconsistent with the purpose of the Act; and
- the applicants are not reasonably able to comply with the regulatory requirements; and
- equivalent safety can be assured by the use of an intervening wall.
This exemption takes effect on 21 October 2019 and expires on 21 October 2024 unless it is replaced sooner or revoked.
