Free workshops on the new WHS laws

Sessions are now fully booked. There will be further sessions later in the year.

You are invited to attend WorkSafe Tasmania's free workshops, which will be held throughout the state during 2012.

These workshops provide a comprehensive overview of the new nationally harmonised WHS laws and will cover

  • key aspects of the new Act and Regulations
  • what these changes mean for Tasmanian businesses and workers
  • how businesses and workers can prepare for the new laws.

This is your opportunity to get the right information and to ask the regulator any questions you might have.
