'Heads of Workplace Safety Authorities' goes online

Tuesday, 18 December, 2007

The Heads of Workplace Safety Authorities (HWSA) chair, John Watson, today announced the launch of a website for the national body at www.hwsa.org.au.

HWSA brings together senior executive officers from the Commonwealth, state and territory and New Zealand workplace safety authorities to improve and harmonise occupational health and safety at a national level.

"HWSA members have established a website which includes information detailing the organisation's vision and objectives, current campaigns, reports, jurisdictional contacts, meeting schedules and associated internet sites," said Watson.

"The organisation's vision is to promote and implement best practice in occupational health and safety in Australia and New Zealand in the areas of policy, legislation, education and enforcement."

Anyone interested in obtaining alerts and updates from the site can register for email notifications.
