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 13.5 million working Australians and their families through preventing work-related fatalities and injuries.

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of Australia’s model WHS laws and the need to ensure they remain fit for purpose. Over the last 12 months, Safe Work Australia felt the continued impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, with the agency required to quickly adapt and produce critical WHS guidance, and position itself to deliver solutions for future challenges. We continued to prioritise the health and wellbeing of our staff, supporting flexible working arrangements and ensuring a healthy working environment.
