  • Health group says no exemption from no-smoking ban - Work Safety Hub
    Hazard and Risk Management Health group says no exemption from no smoking ban Tweet James Packer owner of a proposed casino in Sydney and his company Crown Limited applied to the NSW government to allow smoking inside the proposed casino building They asked that the entire gaming floor which could be as large as two and a half rugby league fields be exempted from a no smoking ban Mr Packer believes that the Crown Sydney casino players must be allowed to smoke in VIP gaming areas in order to effectively compete with Macau Singapore and the rest of Asia But the Quit Victoria health group has criticised the request of Crown Limited to the NSW government Quit Victoria Executive Director Fiona Sharkie said that the move was extremely concerning and accused Crown of putting profit before the health of their staff and consumers She also said that the organization does not support exemptions for high roller rooms because workers are still exposed to the risks of tobacco smoke and it s such a backward step because Australia has enjoyed smoke free workplaces in different states for about twenty years now Nevertheless Crown Limited s proposal was conditionally accepted by NSW Premier Mr Barry O Farrel He described that allowing smoking in the gaming area is absolutely critical to the company who proposed a 24 7 gaming area of up to 20 000 sq meters The Star Casino Crown Sydney casino rival enjoys a similar exemption from NSW laws in its high roller areas The Mahogany Room Crown Melbourne high roller area is also exempted from Victorian anti smoking laws NSW Cancer Council Manager of Tobacco Control Mr Scot Walsberger said that his organization is disappointed that the NSW government has given conditional approval for the proposal of the Crown Limited

  • Audit on QLD Work Health Safety Law Changes - Work Safety Hub
    The legislation took effect for a year and the survey wants to find out if small business owners are very familiar of work safety laws Twelve months after the said law was applied Attorney General and Justice Minister Jarrod Bleijie felt the need for a scientific basis of determining the effectiveness of WHS laws by conducting an online survey Minister Bleijie said No owner wants a poor workplace safety record and as a government we are committed to doing what we can to help small business The large industry has the capacity to invest in state of the art technology and employ more staff which often makes it easier for them to comply with new legislation Being safe at work is essential for both employers and employees but we want to ensure small business owners don t feel disadvantaged financially by the changes he added Meanwhile Minister of Small Business John Stuckey confirmed in an interview that this is exactly what they are doing by finding out the real needs of small business owners This Government is committed to working with business rather than just telling them what to do without consultation We promised Queenslanders we would grow a four pillar economy and that is exactly what we are doing by finding out the real needs of small business owners he added The Minister likewise acknowledged the fact that they should take the lead in these efforts He said We will also invite businesses to take part in focus groups across QLD to further investigate into any significant issues highlighted by the survey This Government is committed to working with business rather than just telling them what to do without consultation The Queensland Council of Unions QCU has a conflicting view with regards to the proposed amendments in WHS laws
