SafeWork SA partners with Small Business Commissioner to offer work health and safety advisory

SafeWork SA has partnered with the Small Business Commissioner to offer free work health and safety advisory service through the Small Business Centre shopfront located in the Adelaide CBD.

“Nearly 800 businesses have taken advantage of the free service since it started, asking for a WHS advisor to help them understand their legal responsibilities and to implement practical systems and solutions to manage their hazards,” said SafeWork SA Acting Executive Director Dini Soulio.

“Partnering with the Commissioner is another way we are making it easier and more convenient or businesses to seek advice from us on their work health and safety.”

Many customers using the new service have rated it as very useful (98%).

“The initiative with SafeWork SA will provide small businesses with a centrally located place they can go to seek advice and support about safety within a workplace,” said Small Business Commissioner, Mr. John Chapman.

“The recently opened Small Business Centre shopfront provides an opportunity for government agencies to have a place where they can meet with small businesses and I hope that other agencies will utilise the space in the future.”

The co-located SafeWork SA service will operate from 12 pm to 5 pm on Wednesdays. The Office of the Small Business Commissioner located at 99 Gawler Place, offers a range of services, including education and free information sessions on different topics.
