Abstract:
Crucial considerations in designing OHS standards that meet these criteria are the content and coverage of standards, the type of OHS standards, and the policy framework within which standards are developed and implemented. These issues have major implications not only for regulators, duty holders and potential victims of work-related injury and disease, but also for the overall effectiveness of the regulatory regime.

This paper examines these three aspects of OHS standards setting with the aim of developing approaches to standards setting that are capable of meeting OHS regulatory challenges in the 21st century. The particular focus of this paper is standards setting under OHS statutes, regulations and evidentiary standards.
