WorkSafe maintains a number of statutory registers and records required under the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017. These registers and records are required for certain equipment, sites or people where an authorisation or approval is granted for storing, handling, using, and transporting hazardous substances.
WorkSafe manages the following registers and records:
- Gas cylinders
- Dispensers and vapourisers
- Tanks and fabricators
- Tank wagons
- Test stations
- Compliance certifiers(external link)
Each register and record, where applicable, incorporates approvals made under previous legislation (including the former Hazardous Substances and New Organisms (HSNO) Act 1996) that has been grand-parented into the Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017.
Use these registers and records to find out whether an approval has been issued or contact us for further information.
