About Us

WorkSafe Victoria plays a critical role in the lives of Victorian employers and workers - as the state’s health and safety regulator and as the manager of Victoria’s workers compensation scheme. In both capacities, employers and workers are at the heart of our service. 

Our aim is to keep all workplaces healthy and safe, and to deliver high quality care and treatment when workers are injured. 

Our future 

Our goals are to embed in every workplace a proactive, prevention-led approach to health and safety across the state, and to provide a personalised, tailored service for every Victorian who comes into contact with WorkSafe. 

Like wearing a seatbelt or putting on sunscreen, “prevention-led” thinking will become automatic every time Victorians step into the workplace. 

WorkSafe are striving to build a diverse workforce that reflects the Victorian community we serve.

Important Information 

WorkSafe is committed to providing and maintaining a working environment which is safe and without risks to health consistent with WorkSafe’s obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004 (OH&S Act).

Therefore, there is a requirement that all WorkSafe employees be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 in order to undertake duties outside of their homes (unless a medical exemption applies).

To meet its obligations under the COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination (Workers) Directions and the OH&S Act, WorkSafe will request vaccination information or evidence of an exemption in the pre-employment stage.

Inability to provide this may impact your subsequent employment with WorkSafe.
