SafeWork NSW is bringing its Safer Communities, Safer Towns event to the North West this week to provide free advice to local businesses.

The SafeWork NSW Team will be at Bourke on Tuesday, 15 December, Brewarrina on Wednesday, 16 December and Walgett on Thursday, 17 December helping business owners, managers, workers and the community to be safer.

SafeWork NSW Dubbo District Coordinator, Mark Smith said SafeWork inspectors will be available to provide face-to-face support on a range of issues faced by small businesses.

“The event is an opportunity for local small businesses to receive expert advice to help them meet work health and safety and workers compensation obligations while discovering what other free services and resources are available,” Mr Smith said.

“SafeWork staff will provide practical advice on work health and safety laws, changes to workers compensation, injury management and recover at work programs.

“Small businesses face many challenges and our inspectors will be able to meet with locals in an effort to tailor health and safety solutions to their workplaces.”

Businesses that attend may be eligible for a rebate of up to $500 through SafeWork’s Small Business Rebate Program which can be used to purchase and install safety improvements.

The SafeWork NSW Safety Van will be at the corner of Richards and Oxley Streets, Bourke from 10am – 3pm on Tuesday, 15 December, Brewarrina Visitor Information Centre, 50 Bathurst Street, Brewarrina from 10am – 3pm on Wednesday, 16 December and Walgett Council Building, 77 Fox Street, Walgett from 10am – 3pm on Thursday, 17 December.
