Why WorkSafe exists

Learn about WorkSafe's purpose to reduce workplace harm as Victoria's occupational health and safety regulator, and improve outcomes for injured workers as the state's workplace injury insurer. This session will cover the basics of WorkSafe's role in harm prevention, enforcement, recovery and return to work and how we can advise and support employers to create safe workplaces.


Hazardous manual handling basics

11:00am to 11:50am

Around 36% of workplace injuries in Victoria are for musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) caused by hazardous manual handling. Most work involves manual handling every day, but addressing hazardous manual handling can feel complicated and overwhelming.

In this session you’ll learn about the guidance, practical tools and education programs that WorkSafe have developed to help your business prevent MSDs from hazardous manual handling.
