You must provide an annual report to WorkSafe if, at any time in a year, sodium fluoroacetate (1080) is present in your workplace, including if your workplace is a laboratory. The report must be provided by 31 March for the preceding calendar year.
The Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017(external link) require an annual report to be provided to WorkSafe where sodium fluoroacetate (1080) is or has been present in a workplace. This includes a laboratory operating under Part 18 of the regulations.
The annual report for the period 1 January to 31 December 2022 must be provided by 31 March 2023. The controls on 1080 require tracking records to be kept and you should have been recording the relevant information already.
Your annual report must include the following information:
- The name and address of the workplace
- The name of the supplier who supplied the 1080
- The purpose(s) for which the 1080 was obtained
- The quantities of 1080 present
- Details of the movement of 1080 (transfer or disposal).
WorkSafe has developed a template to help you meet your annual reporting requirements.
