2018 National WHS Forums

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

The forum program included:

  • A Comcare scheme and jurisdictional update
  • National/regional inspectorate update
  • Risk perception and behavioural insights
  • Safety culture and leadership
  • Comcare feedback session
