Working with Workplace Standards Tasmania

Working with Workplace Standards Tasmania

WorkCover Tasmania and Workplace Standards Tasmania often provide services to the same clients. The work of both organisations needs to be co-operatively linked (where appropriate), and undertaken with a clear understanding and agreement about the roles and responsibilities each has when providing services to Tasmanian workplaces.

This is a working agreement to be implemented at all levels in both organisations. It covers:

  • roles and responsibilities of the WorkCover Advisory Service and the Workplace Standards Inspectorate
  • communication between the two organisations
  • protocols for Advisory Service and Inspectorate program development
  • organisational policy and legislative obligations
  • training
  • dispute resolution
  • review processes
  • joint management
  • information sharing
