Worksafe Victoria Announces New Safety Record
The results were released to key stakeholders by Finance Minister Robin Scott MP, acting chair John Walter and acting chief executive Clare Amies at a briefing at the State Library of Victoria.
In his address to stakeholders representing unions, employer groups and peak body associations Minister Scott highlighted the need for further improvements in workplace safety.
Generally workers in Victoria are safer than they have ever been, but still too many have been killed or seriously injured, Mr Scott said.
And when it comes to support for those injured workers who have been unable to return to work, we must do more to get them back to work.
Our results show that there has been further improvements in safety in Victoria, which is a real credit to Victorian workplaces and their continued efforts to make a culture of safety a key priority, Ms Amies said.
