SafeWork NSW is bringing its Safer Communities, Safer Towns event to Wee Waa next week to provide free advice to local businesses.

The SafeWork NSW Team will be at Wee Waa on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 November helping business owners, managers, workers and the community to be safer.

SafeWork NSW Director, Regional and Response Operations, Tony Williams, 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 Williams 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.

Advisors will be in front of the IGA Supermarket, 90 Rose Street between 9am and 4pm each day with the SafeWork NSW Safety Van.

To book a spot with a SafeWork NSW inspector at the event call SafeWork NSW’s Narrabri office on (02) 6792 8720.
