Prevention, intervention and rehabilitation
Work safe and live well
Each year, it is estimated that work-related injuries in Australia cost in excess of $60 billion, with a significant amount of this cost directly impacting the community in which we live and work.
Fortunately, many of these injuries are preventable or able to be significantly reduced through early intervention assessments and programs.
At Work OH&S are passionate to support our community to identify potential risks, and design and implement measures to promote the health, safety and wellbeing risk of our local workforce. Our highly experienced staff provide customised assessments to suit all your workplace needs.
