Can I appeal an Occupational Health and Safety decision?
Of course you can.
Any employer, worker or trade union may appeal Occupational Health and Safety decisions, administrative penalties, orders or refusals to give an order.
However, before you launch a formal appeal we encourage you to contact the OH&S staff member or the Director of OH&S to discuss the rationale and reasoning for the order or decision.
Talking may eliminate the formal appeal.
When appeal is inevitable, you must do it in writing to the director of Occupational Health and Safety.
The Notice of Appeal form is here. It can be mailed or delivered to our offices below.
If you have any questions, we are happy to answer them.
