SafeWork NSW has bolstered its ranks with new graduate inspectors to ensure worksite safety is upheld across the state.
The 35 recent graduates specialised in a select number of different fields SafeWork regulates as part of their Diploma of Government (Workplace Inspection). These include construction, health and safe design, chemicals, explosives and safety audits, investigations, and emergency response.
A further six inspectors graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Government (Workplace Inspection).
“Our inspectors are on the front line of providing safe worksites across the state and we cannot thank them enough for their commitment to safer and healthier work in NSW,” Head of SafeWork Trent Curtin said.
“We wish our 35 recently graduated inspectors the best of luck in their new careers and celebrate the ongoing commitment and dedication of our six Inspectors who graduated with an Advanced Diploma and thank them for continuing to develop their skills to provide safer workplaces across NSW.”
The new inspectors will be stationed across NSW in regional and metropolitan areas. Their presence will help SafeWork NSW provide incident response and service requests for local communities.
