Second review of asbestos compensation laws underway in Tasmania

The Tasmanian Government is conducting an independent review of the Asbestos-Related Diseases (Occupational Exposure) Compensation Act 2011.

The review is being conducted by former Coroner Rod Chandler and compensation policy expert Liz Chandler.

The Tasmanian Government conducts an independent review of the Asbestos-Related Diseases (Occupational Exposure) Compensation Act 2011 every five years. This is the second review.

WorkSafe Tasmania said "the review will assess the performance of the asbestos compensation laws against the objectives of the Act."

"The review will also consider the ongoing viability and sustainability of our asbestos compensation scheme, performance of the scheme (in terms of entitlements, premiums and coverage), and ongoing relevance and or currency of recommendations from the first review in 2016."

Submissions must be lodged by 5pm on Friday 8 April 2022.
