Ms PULFORD (Minister for Agriculture) tabled following statement in accordance with Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006:

Opening paragraphs

In accordance with section 28 of the Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities Act 2006 (charter act), I make this statement of compatibility with the WorkSafe Legislation Amendment Bill 2017.

In my opinion the bill, as introduced to the Legislative Council, is compatible with the human rights protected by the charter act. I base my opinion on the reasons outlined in this statement.

Human rights issues

There are no human rights protected under the charter that are relevant to this bill. I therefore consider that this bill is compatible with the charter.
