Workplace safety funding boost for Victorian workers

WorkSafe Victoria has awarded grants amounting to $2.47 million to support nine projects that will help improve workplace health and safety.

The safety watchdog says projects to reduce workplace harm and improve health outcomes for injured workers will benefit from the program.

WorkSafe Chief Executive Officer Colin Radford said, “We are delighted to be able to provide funding for these innovative projects that reflect our values and will prevent harm in workplaces across Victoria.”

“From using wearable technology devices to identify injury risk factors, to developing programs to reduce psychosocial harm, these ground-breaking initiatives will make a lasting difference to the lives of Victorian workers and their families.”

WorkSafe’s grants program supports workplace and community solutions that improve the health and safety of Victorian workers.
