Safe Towns program

The Safe Towns program involves an information session before a workplace inspection blitz by WorkSafe inspectors at targeted locations throughout the year.

During the workplace visits, inspectors provide practical and constructive advice about how to comply with Victoria's occupational health and safety laws, and advise how to fix any safety breaches they come across.

Prior to each blitz, local employers are notified and invited to attend an information session to prepare for a visit from an inspector. This gives employers time to carry out safety checks and fix potential problems before inspectors arrive.

The Safe Towns program runs approximately three times per year at different locations across the state.
