Abstract:
Infringement notices are part of the OHS law enforcement regime in five of the Australian jurisdictions and there are plans to introduce them in others. Legislation enabling their use was recently enacted in New Zealand, and various forms of administrative penalty are also used in OHS law enforcement including the United States, some Canadian provinces and some European countries. Discusses the issues pertaining to infringement notice schemes in Australia and New Zealand. Comparison of the different schemes reveals key differences in the legislative basis for serving infringement notices, the types of offences for which they may be issued, the monetary amount of penalties, the criteria for serving such notices, the form and method of serving infringement notices, the required response to a notice and the effect of payment.
