About Us

WorkSafe Victoria is a globalleader in OHS and workers’ compensation.

Our role

WorkSafe Victoria plays a critical role in the lives of Victorianemployers and workers - as the state’s health and safety regulator and as themanager of Victoria’s workers compensation scheme. In both capacities,employers and workers are at the heart of our service.

Our aim is to keep all workplaces healthy and safe, and to deliverhigh quality care and treatment when workers are injured.

Our history

WorkSafe has a proud history. Over more than 30 years, we haveworked hard with employers and workers to create safer workplaces.

In that time, Victoria’s workers’ compensation scheme has helpedmore than one million injured workers receive compensation, rehabilitation andmedical services, while maintaining one of the lowest premium rates inAustralia.

However, our workplaces and industries are changing rapidly. Newrisks and hazards are emerging and community expectations are shifting.

Our future

To meet the challenge, WorkSafe has begun modernising itsservices. We’re aiming to provide an inclusive, empathetic and tailored servicefor every Victorian who comes into contact with WorkSafe, and embed aproactive, prevention-led approach to health and safety in every workplaceacross Victoria by 2030.

Prevention-led

Like wearing a seatbelt or putting on sunscreen, “prevention-led”thinking will become automatic every time Victorians step into the workplace.

Community partnership

In stronger partnership with the community, we will help educateVictorians in tackling rising workplace issues such as mental injury, bullying,occupational violence and post-traumatic stress disorder.

These crucial changes will ensure that, over the next decade andbeyond, WorkSafe continues to lead the way in creating healthier and saferworkplaces for all Victorians.
