On 1 September 2015, the regulatory and insurance functions of WorkCover are assumed by three new discrete organisations: the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA) for workers compensation regulation, SafeWork NSW for work health and safety regulation and Insurance and Care NSW (icare) for workers compensation insurance.
SafeWork NSW is the state’s workplace health and safety regulator. We focus on harm prevention and improving the safety culture in NSW workplaces.
SafeWork NSW offers advice on improving work health and safety, provides licencing and registration for potentially dangerous work, provides testing services, investigates workplace incidents and enforces work health and safety laws in NSW.
Comprehensive work health and safety information is available on the WorkCover website.
