VIC: WorkSafe to Host Breakfast for Small Businesses

Source: Safety Culture

WorkSafe is inviting small businesses in Sale to attend a free breakfast on Thursday. This is part of the safety watchdog's efforts to help them prepare for safety audit next month.

According to WorkSafe's Charlotte Bull, it is an opportunity for businesses to ask about workplace health and safety and how they can comply with relevant laws.

Ms Bull said it will precede an inspection blitz in May.

"Our inspectors will be visiting Sale from the 17 to the 21st of May. Probably going to be visiting around 200 businesses during that time," she said.

"They're going to be small businesses. We're going to be particularly targeting businesses which we haven't visited probably in the last 12 months and who have had previous claims for workplace injury or illness."
