HSNO – Automotive spray painting, boat building and metal finishing

Hazardous substances are economically important. We use them every day in our homes, businesses, farms, factories, schools and hospitals, yet they have potential to harm people and the environment if mismanaged or mishandled.

It is critical that these substances are safely managed in workplaces.
Hazardous substances are primarily managed under the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996; and can also be considered hazards under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992.

The Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) workplace health and safety focus for 2013/14 is automotive spray painting, boat building and metal finishing.

HSWA repeals the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, with immediate effect.

All references to the 1992 Act on this website and within our guidance will be progressively removed.
