NSW seeks stakeholder feedback on 'Towards Healthy Work Plan'

The NSW Government is calling for public submissions on SafeWork NSW's new plan aimed at enhancing workplace health and safety across the state.

Head of SafeWork NSW Natasha Mann said the Government wants to hear from relevant stakeholders, including employers and workers before the launch of the Towards Healthy Work Plan late next year.

"Prevention of workplace incidents has mainly focused on identifying physical hazards in the workplace but research shows health and safety can be improved further when work is designed to be physically and psychologically healthy and workers are engaged in the way work is done," Ms Mann said.

"SafeWork NSW is encouraging the business community to review our principles of 'Healthy Work' and to contribute to ideas, stories and examples of work practices that are healthy."

Submissions close at 5pm on Tuesday, 31 January 2023.
