Next generation of inspectors join SafeWork NSW

The Queensland Government has appointed three additional mine inspectors and another chief inspector as the resources industry responds to recent mine-related tragedies.

New SafeWork NSW graduates are joining the organisations ranks to ensure the safety of workers on job sites across the state.

Head of SafeWork Trent Curtin and NSW Industrial Relations Minister Sophie Cotsis celebrated the achievements of the new recruits late last year.

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.

They will be based in both metropolitan and regional locations to ensure communities have timely responses to incidents and requests for service by Inspectors with local knowledge and experience.

“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,” 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.”
