Further impacts from abolition of NSW Industrial Court – WHS Category 3

In addition to the changes set out in our September Public Sector Update, proceedings for Category 3 offences under the Work Health and Safety Act have been moved to the District and Local Courts.

This move will finalise prosecution arrangements under the WHS Act, with the most serious Category 1 and serious Category 2 offences being previously transferred from the Industrial Court to the District and Local Courts in 2011.
