Safe Work Australia has begun the mid-term review of the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022, due to be completed by the end of 2017.
The Australian Strategy, with its vision of ‘health, safe and productive working lives’, is a framework to help improve work health and safety in Australia.
The agency is currently consulting a range of stakeholders including government bodies, unions, industry associations and work health and safety professionals and academics.
Safe Work Australia is specifically examining how the strategy has influenced work health and safety activities; whether the key elements of the strategy can continue to drive safety improvements, and the areas of work health and safety that require greater attention over the next five years to achieve the Australian Strategy’s vision.
The review’s outcomes will be published in late 2017.
