SafeWork NSW’s Safer Communities, Safer Towns program will tour Central West NSW next month as part of its efforts to help business owners, workers and the community be safer.

The SafeWork NSW Team will visit Rylstone, Kandos, Mudgee and Gulgong from 8 – 10 March, to providing free advice to local businesses along the way.

SafeWork NSW Dubbo District Coordinator, Mark Smith said SafeWork inspectors will be able to provide advice on a range of issues.

“The tour is an opportunity to receive expert advice to help businesses and workers meet work health and safety and workers compensation obligations while discovering what other free services and resources we have on offer,” Mr Smith said.

“Small businesses face many challenges and our inspectors will be able to help locals tailor health and safety solutions to their workplaces.

“Businesses and workers can receive practical advice on work health and safety laws, changes to workers compensation, injury management and recover at work programs.”

Any business that attends may be eligible for a rebate of up to $500 through SafeWork’s Small Business Rebate Program. The rebates can be used towards the purchase and installation of safety improvements in the business.
