The modern ground floor facility replaces the former Dandenong office on a site that has been carefully chosen to further build on WorkSafe's presence in one of the fastest growing regions of the state.
Up to 45 WorkSafe staff, including investigators, inspectors, members of the specialist psycho-social team and support staff, will work out of the building.
New technology has been built into the site which also offers greater accessibility and is close to local amenities and public transport links.
The Member for Narre Warren North and Minister for Child Protection and Disability, Ageing and Carers, Luke Donnellan MP joined WorkSafe Chairman John Merritt and Chief Executive Colin Radford to formally declare the building open in front of a crowd of about 60 people.
Mr Radford said the new building was perfectly located to tackle the occupational heath and safety challenges of the area.
"In the City of Casey and the surrounding Frankston and Greater Dandenong region WorkSafe has accepted almost 2400 claims for workplace injuries this year alone," Mr Radford said.
"One workplace injury is one too many and we need to ensure our employees are equipped with the most up to date tools and facilities to meet the growing needs of the community," he said.
"WorkSafe is committed to ensuring every worker gets home safely at the end of every day and this new office is positioned to ensure we can do this now and into the future."
Construction, manufacturing, healthcare and social assistance are the major industries for injury claims in the area, with more than half of the claims accepted by WorkSafe caused by body stressing and slips, trips and falls.
