Compliance and enforcement
WorkSafe applies a strategy of 'constructive compliance' – a combination of incentives and deterrents – to improve workplace health and safety.
This strategy recognises that real and sustainable improvement in workplace health and safety requires active involvement from employers and employees in identifying hazards and controlling risks. It also recognises that enforcement action, including prosecution, may be taken whether or not a breach of Victoria's OHS laws has resulted in death, injury or disease.
