Work health and safety
Ensuring you, your people and customers are safe in your workplace is a critical role for business owners.
Worksafe Tasmania is set up to help all Tasmanian employers and businesses to comply with the relevant legislation, manage risks, and if an incident does occur, respond quickly and correctly.
Their website is a wealth of information and advice, and they offer small businesses personalised help through their WHS Advisor service, where an advisor will come to your business and work with you to proactively create a safe working environment.
WorkSafe also publishes Workplace Issues magazine, which Business Tasmania regularly contributes to. It covers practical guidance on safety, workers compensation, and workplace wellbeing. The magazine is published three times a year, and you can subscribe for free.
