Health and Safety Representatives (HSRs) may issue a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) if they believe that a person is breaking the law, or likely to break the law, a provision of HSWA, or the Regulations. A PIN may be issued to any person, including the business that the HSR works for, a worker or another business.
A business may request that WorkSafe assist with removing an HSR, but for the regulator to remove an HSR there must be evidence that the HSR has not performed or exercised their functions or powers satisfactorily.
Where attempts have been made and have failed to resolve a work health and safety issue, the PCBU, HSR, or worker can request WorkSafe to appoint an inspector to assist with the resolution of the issue.
If a business is issued with a PIN and disagrees with it, it can within seven days, request WorkSafe to review the PIN by completing the Request a Review of a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) form.
Where attempts have been made and have failed to resolve a cessation of work issue, the business, HSR or worker can request WorkSafe's assistance.
