What you need to know

We are now supplying a new (multiyear) model WOEF sticker that will replace the current single year expiry model, similar to the way motor vehicle warrants work.

Reasons for change

To provide a WorkSafe approved sticker that is compliant convenient, cost effective and to stop issues associated with:

  • Lack of supply towards the end of any given year due to unexpected purchaser demand
  • Purchasers overordering stickers they cannot use because the year date has expired

What has changed

  • The use of the authentication mark (same as what is required on a certificate of compliance)
  • The use of 4 consecutive year dates
  • The form has now been updated to include “Pleasure Vessel” and “Mobile Medical Facility”

How to use the new sticker.

  • The issuer should use an appropriate hole punch to clip the year and date of expiry.
  • The back of the sticker should contain the appropriate information written in a fine tipped indelible pen.

When the new stickers are available

28 November 2022
