32S  Excluded occupations

             (1)  This section applies in relation to an employer and an employee if the employee is employed in an occupation where the rate of death in the workplace is more than 2.5 in 100,000 per year, averaged over a five‑year period, as determined by the Australian Government Actuary.

             (2)  For the purposes of this Act, the most recent notification to the employer:

                     (a)  by the Commissioner; and

                     (b)  relating to a request by the employer (or by the employer’s agent) for the Commissioner to identify any stapled fund for the employee; is taken to be that the Commissioner is satisfied that there is no stapled fund for the employee.

             (3)  On 1 July each year, the Australian Government Actuary must publish a list of occupations where the rate of death in the workplace is more than 2.5 in 100,000 per year, averaged over a five‑year period.

             (4)  An employee in an occupation identified by this section is considered not to have a stapled fund.

Note:          The intent of this section is to ensure that the stapling provisions do not apply to workers employed in dangerous occupations.
