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.
