Members would be aware of the recent report by the NSW Ombudsman titled Investigation into actions taken by SafeWork NSW Inspectors in relation to Blue Mountains City Council workplaces.
You can view a copy of the report HERE.
As the reports states: “The issues at the heart of this investigation centre on good administrative practice. Employers, workers and the community need to be able to place their trust in a regulator to act lawfully and reasonably, and to provide certainty and consistency in enforcement. Only by addressing issues such as these can we ensure that everyone in NSW receives the right services and fair treatment from those we oversight.”
To assist in identifying the extent of this issue we are asking Inspectors and Managers to complete the following survey. All answers are strictly confidential.
Once this information has been received and assessed, the PSA will provide feedback to members to discuss what further action may be required.
You can take the survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/SafeWorknotices
