2018 National WHS Forums

The 2018 National Work Health and Safety (WHS) forum program builds on Comcare's commitment of working together with our jurisdiction for safer and healthier workplaces.

About the Forums

The Forums provide an opportunity for Comcare and WHS regulated stakeholders to engage and build relationships, and for attendees to gain insight into a range of WHS and Comcare related information. Comcare also encourages feedback from stakeholders during the forums on the work of Comcare to identify areas where additional support, guidance and resources can be provided.

The WHS forums aim to:

  • support regulated entities’ to understand their WHS and rehabilitation obligations
  • encourage regulated entities’ to consider and adopt better WHS and rehabilitation practices.

Who should attend?

This forum is open to members of Comcare's jurisdiction. It will be relevant to all members of the jurisdiction who work or have interest in work health and safety.
