Australian WHS Strategy 2012-2022

Graham Marshall - Tuesday, December 04, 2012

The new Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 has been published by Safe Work Australia.

The strategy provides a framework to drive improvements in work health and safety and is aimed at governments, work health and safety regulators, industry, unions, and other organizations that influence work health and safety in workplaces across Australia.

The strategy promotes a vision of healthy, safe and productive working lives.

 It sets out four outcomes to be achieved by the year 2022:
 Reduced incidence of work-related death, injury and illness;
 Reduced exposure to hazards and risks;
 Improved hazard controls; and
 Improved work health and safety infrastructure.

The strategy also includes national targets to reduce by at least:
 20 per cent the number of worker fatalities;
 30 per cent the incidence rate of claims resulting in one or more weeks off work; and
 30 per cent the incidence rate of claims for musculoskeletal disorders resulting in one or more weeks off work.
