Site Information and assistance

The Safe Work Australia Sponsorship Program (the Program) is an open non-competitive program that takes effect from 1 July 2017 and will run for one year to 30 June 2018, with scope for renewal.

We are committed to improving work health and safety and workers’ compensation arrangements across Australia and provide support through the Program to initiatives of individuals, businesses, government and non-government organisations that align with this commitment.

The aims of this Program are to:

  • increase community awareness and knowledge of WHS and workers’ compensation
  • build our profile as the national policy body for WHS and workers’ compensation
  • build relationships with key influencers and national bodies, and
  • support priority areas and industries in the Australian WHS Strategy 2012–2020.

Sponsorship under the Program can include the receipt or provision of goods, services, cash, intellectual property or expertise in return for negotiated benefits.

Sponsorship Guidelines are available on GrantConnect where the Australian Government publishes all grant and forecast opportunities.

For more information on the Program, the application and assessment process, and the Safe Work Australia Sponsorship Request Form, visit GrantConnect and create a login.

Consistent with the Commonwealth Grant Rules and Guidelines 2017, information on individual grants are now reported on GrantConnect.

This will be done no later than twenty-one calendar days after the grant agreement for the grant takes effect.

Information on individual grants awarded prior to 31 December 2017 are reported on the Grants and sponsorships provided by Safe Work Australia webpage.
