Take a glimpse into the future of health and safety and workers' compensation in Victoria.

One of these challenges is the projected rise in mental injuries. WorkSafe Health and Safety Month Ambassador Catherine McClements will share her experience with the Arts Centre Melbourne's The Wellbeing Collective – a collaborative program to address mental health in the entertainment industry.
