Workplace safety goes social


There is a new space for businesses to get social to stay safe, with the recent launch of the WorkSafe.HomeSafe fan page on the popular social networking site, Facebook.

An initiative of WorkCover NSW, WorkSafe.HomeSafe gives employers, workers, and their families, a place to share their ideas and reasons for staying safe at work. And with contributions from work health and safety regulators across the country, it also offers trusted information and advice.

WorkCover is now inviting all employers and workers to become a fan of WorkSafe.HomeSafe on Facebook, and join the growing community sharing their work safety thoughts, experiences and information.

WorkSafe.HomeSafe is lively and interactive, with regular discussions, safety videos, news stories, surveys and links to relevant work health and safety information.

With support from workplace health and safety regulators from across the country and 'fans' of the page coming from all over Australia and overseas, it makes information shared on the WorkSafe.HomeSafe page relevant for all Australian workers and employers.

To become a fan you will need a Facebook account then visit: and click on the fan button.
