WorkCover inspectors graduate

Friday, 18 April, 2008


WorkCover NSW has boosted its ranks this week, with the graduation of 14 new inspectors and the appointment of a further 11 trainees to the inspector program.

NSW Minister for Industrial Relations John Della Bosca said the new inspectors will play a vital role in helping the NSW government meet its commitment to reduce workplace injuries by 40% and workplace fatalities by 20% by 2012.

“By working closely with industry, WorkCover inspectors have assisted in bringing workplace injuries in NSW down to their lowest levels in 20 years,” Della Bosca said.

The graduates undertook 18 months of intensive theoretical and practical field training to qualify for the Diploma of Government (Workplace Inspection), which included negotiation training, evidence gathering and investigation skills.
