A ROADMAP FOR NSW BUSINESSES
Our workplaces are the engine room of NSW’s economic success and key to this success is the need to embed a health and safety landscape in workplaces across the state. The Roadmap outlines the critical elements at the heart of a health and safety landscape, namely:
- committed leadership
- good safety practices
- safe design and supply chains
- skilled workers who look after each other
A sustained commitment to this Roadmap by all stakeholders will enable us to achieve a 20 per cent reduction in workplace fatalities by 2022; a 30 per cent reduction in serious injuries and illnesses; and a 30 per cent reduction in serious musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses.
