Site Information and assistance

Check out WorkSafe Victoria's Injury Hotspots interactive tool, which provides an industry-wide snapshot of how people get injured at work. It pinpoints areas on the body that are most likely to be injured and offers a list of solutions that can help reduce the risk of the injuries occurring. Injury Hotspots is a quick and easy tool to raise awareness of safety in your workplace. You can use it for training and induction, promoting general safety awareness or promoting your Work Health and Safety program.
