Health, safety and wellbeing at work

We want your views on how we can increase the focus on 'health' in work health and safety. If you work in NSW, help us understand your experience so we can create a safer workplace future.

In NSW, employers must follow work health and safety laws to protect workers from injury and illness. As how and where we work changes over time, it’s important we continually improve our approach to workplace health and safety.

SafeWork NSW wants to understand how businesses could adopt an integrated Healthy Work approach, where:

  • work is designed and managed in a way that does not cause harm
  • work has benefits to the physical and psychological health, safety and wellbeing of workers.

Safer and more productive

SafeWork NSW proposes seven principles to guide discussion and inform our future Healthy Work Plan for NSW.

  1. Healthy Work is good for business
  2. Leadership is fundamental to creating Healthy Work
  3. Creation of Healthy Work relies on worker participation
  4. Design work to be healthy
  5. Healthy Work can positively influence lives
  6. A strategic coordinated approach is required to achieve Healthy Work
  7. Healthy Work is built on a foundation of safety.

Share your feedback on the Healthy Work Principles and how we can support you to design Healthy Work.

Tell us what you think

We want to hear from business owners, managers, work health and safety professionals, human resources professionals or anyone interested in improving how we think about health and safety.

You can have your say by completing the survey, sharing an idea, joining a discussion forum, or any combination of these.

Your feedback will help us understand how your industry or organisation could adopt Healthy Work, so our Healthy Work Plan includes a range of people's views.

This important public consultation is open until 5 pm on Tuesday, 31 January 2023.
