    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.
