WorkSafe OHS essentials program

Learn more about your safety obligations and receive tailored advice on managing safety in your workplace.

The WorkSafe OHS Essentials Program is a free safety consultation service, administered by WorkSafe but delivered by expeienced and qualified occupational health and safety (OHS) consultants. One of our OHS consultants will come to your workplace, help you identify hazards and develop a practical safety action plan. The plan outlines your safety risks and we can provide you with advice on how you might address them.

The consultant will visit your workplace again after three months to give further advice and support.

The program is available to small and medium-sized businesses with a WorkCover Insurance Policy. Sole traders with contractors may be also eligible but must hold a WorkCover Insurance Policy.
