Achievements in organisational effectiveness

Safe Work Australia is an engaged workplace that prides itself on its commitment to safety, diversity and inclusion. We provide generous terms and conditions, access to flexible working arrangements, a range of health and wellbeing initiatives and access to professional development. We also like to get involved; we participate in a range of corporate and charitable activities. We are a small agency of around 100 people, but our work plays a significant role in the lives of 12.5 million working Australians.

In 2020, like many other workplaces, Safe Work Australia experienced significant disruption from the COVID-19 pandemic and working from home. To enable the agency’s rapid transition to remote working, we deployed an agile and adaptive human resources framework specifically for this purpose to assist the agency in its external COVID-19 response.
