New prosecution guidelinesNotice | 29/01/2018
The SafeWork NSW Prosecution Guidelines have been updated and streamlined.
Limited changes have been made to the policy intent of the former guidelines. Workers compensation content has been removed, as this area of responsibility now rests with the State Insurance Regulatory Authority.
The guidelines are used to determine what enforcement action should be taken in response to risks which arise and incidents which occur, in NSW workplaces. The guidelines promote transparency, consistency and accountability for decisions made by SafeWork NSW.
