New SafeWork inspectors to promote health and safety in NSW

New SafeWork NSW graduates have joined the organisation’s ranks, to help ensure the safety of workers on job sites across the state. Each of the 35 new graduates specialises in a select number of different fields regulated by SafeWork NSW, as part of the Diploma of Government (Workplace Inspection). These include construction, health and safe design, explosives and safety audits, investigations and emergency response.

The inspectors will be based across the state in metropolitan and regional locations, to ensure communities have timely responses to incidents and requests for service by inspectors with local knowledge and experience. The 35 graduated inspectors were joined by six experienced inspectors who graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Government (Workplace Inspection).

These recent graduates will ensure that workplaces across NSW uphold a high standard of health and safety.

“Our inspectors are on the front line of providing safe worksites across the state and we cannot thank them enough for their commitment to safer and healthier work in NSW. We wish our 35 recently graduated inspectors the best of luck in their new careers and celebrate the ongoing commitment and dedication of our six inspectors who graduated with an Advanced Diploma and thank them for continuing to develop their skills to provide safer workplaces across NSW,” said Trent Curtin, Head of SafeWork NSW.
