Review of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy

Safe Work Australia has commenced the mid-term review of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012–2022, due to be completed by the end of 2017.

With its vision of ‘healthy, safe and productive working lives’, the Australian Strategy is a framework to help improve work health and safety in Australia.

Safe Work Australia is currently consulting a range of stakeholders including government bodies, unions, industry associations and work health and safety professionals and academics. We are specifically examining:

  • how the strategy has influenced work health and safety activities
  • whether the key elements of the strategy can continue to drive safety improvements, and
  • the areas of work health and safety that require greater attention over the next five years to achieve the Australian Strategy’s vision.

The outcomes of the review will be published in late 2017.

Further information can be found on the Australian Strategy web page.
