Safe Work Australia notes that there is now little over a week left for public comment on the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022.
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 aims to identify priority industries and set key targets and objectives for the progression of work health and safety in Australia over the next ten years.
The public comment period provides workers, employers and policy makers with the opportunity to have their say on work, health and safety for the next decade.
Safe Work Australia Chair Mr Tom Phillips AM urges all interested Australians to be actively involved in the development of this strategy, commenting that "Safe Work Australia is seeking your views to develop a practical, overarching strategy with targets that all Australian workplaces can and should aspire to achieve."
The public comment period on the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022 will close on Monday, 21st May, 2012. Further information about the strategy can be found on the Safe Work Australia website.
