Worksafe Tasmania

WorkSafe Tasmania is an amalgamation of Workplace Standards and WorkCover Tasmania and is responsible for regulating workplace standards.  Its aim is to reduce workplace related injury, disease, and death through better safety and health procedures, and the regulation of the rehabilitation process in the event of an accident. WorkSafe Tasmania also aims to engage with the community and provide all the information needed for workplaces: health and safety information, wellbeing guidance, long service leave advice, and information on holidays. The Code of Practices for industries and work types are not summarised here, as information on these Codes is best read at the source.

The WorkSafe Regulations relevant to employer obligations may be accessed through the WorkSafe Tasmania website.
