Health Care and Social Assistance Work Health and Safety Sector Plan

01-Nov-2019

In association with SafeWork NSW and the other Health Unions, ASMOF NSW has helped develop the Health Care and Social Assistance Work Health and Safety Sector Plan

The aim of the plan is to raise awareness, build capability and drive industry wide change to create safe and healthy workplaces across the sector.

What is worrying is that across the health care and social assistance sector, despite work being done to keep workers safe, there are over 13,000 injuries every year. Nearly half (43%) of all these injuries are serious, resulting in five or more days off work.

Safe Work NSW are holding three regional workshops to discuss the plan and we encourage members who live/work in and around Orange, Coffs Harbour and Wollongong to attend.
