The two principal components of the national model regulations are: 1. information provisions, and 2. assessment and control provisions. The information provisions address the delivery of specific information, eg. labels and material safety data sheets, that the supplier of a workplace substance has to provide through the employer to employees. These provisions also ensure that employee representatives, relevant public authorities and emergency services are also provided with access to relevant information. The assessment and control provisions require employers to identify hazardous substances in the workplace, make an assessment of those hazards which arise out of the work activity and then take appropriate action. The national model regulations require assessments to be done in consultation with employees and employee representatives so that the assessment is tailored to each workplace and appropriate controls are put in place. 1994

National data set for compensation-based statistics ( Book )
5 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and held by 100 libraries worldwide
'The Commission has been concerned to ensure relevant, timely and comparable national statistics on occupational health and safety (OHS) are available. It was determined that State and Territory workers' compensation systems offered the best data source for facilitating improvements in OHS in terms of scope and coverage considerations, ease of collection and cost. Since workers' compensation has always been the responsibility of the States and Territories, claims legislation was not consistent across Australia and, therefore, the resultant statistics were not collected in a comparable way. To overcome this lack of uniformity in data collection, a national data set for compensation-based statistics was developed. Following a series of consultative meetings, the National Data Set for Compensation-based Statistics (NDS) was endorsed by NOHSC in 1987'--P.1
