Cross Border

The Cross Border initiative involves a partnership between WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW, working together to ensure that construction safety requirements remain consistent along the Victoria and New South Wales border.



Established in 1998, Cross Border continues to raise awareness, deliver industry oversight of laws, and educate construction employers and duty-holders who work along the Victoria and NSW border of their legal duties. Both regulators deliver joint activities, including inspections, trade breakfasts and educational presentations at local TAFEs to raise awareness of the construction industry's health and safety requirements and employer obligations.

Workplace inspection blitz: Is your worksite inspection-ready?

Our inspectors will be visiting workplaces in the region from Monday 15 April - Friday 19 April, so there's no better time to refresh your understanding of workplace safety and review your safety systems.

This is a great opportunity to stop by for some brekkie, and ask any questions around your rights, responsibilities or employer obligations at work, ahead of the inspections. The team will also be presenting to local TAFE students during this week, to help improve their understanding of potential harms, and use of onsite risk controls to prevent workplace injuries.

Both regulators will also present at local TAFEs to engage with the students, young workers and apprentices to increase their knowledge of potential harms and use of risk controls onsite to prevent workplace injuries.
