The State Government has outlined its vision for workplace safety and health in the attached communique to the public sector, which will be brought to the attention of all staff employed by the Western Australian public sector.
The State Government’s vision is for a Western Australian public sector where:
• workplaces are mentally and physically healthy environments with positive and consultative safety cultures
• workplace safety, health and injury management follows leading practice principles
• national targets for health and safety performance and injury management are achieved for the sector.
Every public sector agency will make a commitment to their employees by outlining a number of actions to promote and support workplace safety and health. To assist the agencies, a sample statement of commitment is available now as part of the online resource.
