Free safety advice for your business

13 June 2023 | By WorkSafe Victoria

The WorkSafe OHS Essentials Program is a free workplace safety consultation service, delivered by independent occupational health and safety experts, not employed by WorkSafe.

The service is a great way to receive free, independent and tailored advice to manage safety at your workplace.

An OHS Essentials consultant will visit your workplace to help you identify hazards and provide a practical safety action plan. The consultant can even check-in with you again, to gauge how you’re tracking with the plan.

OHS Essentials is available to small and medium employers, registered for WorkCover insurance. Sole traders with contractors may also be eligible, but must be registered for WorkCover insurance.

Farmers do not need a WorkCover insurance policy to be eligible for the OHS Essentials program. If you are a farmer please email the OHS Essentials team at ohsessentials@worksafe.vic.gov.au to submit your application.

The program is:

Confidential: Consultants are not employed by WorkSafe and their recommendations are completely confidential.

Independent: Benefit from practical, tailored safety advice from an independent OHS consultant.

Personalised: Your OHS consultant will come to your workplace and make safety recommendations right for your business.
