WHS Grants – Feb 2012

Businesses in NSW and Victoria could be eligible for cash grants for Workplace Health and Safety activities.

NSW WorkCover offers the Safety Solutions Rebate of up to $500 to small businesses in NSW.

You can claim the rebate for a range of safety solutions including:

  • safety technologies - such as closed chemical delivery systems, non-slip floors, machine guarding or fall arrest devices
  • safety equipment - such as mechanical lifting aids, patient slides or conveyors
  • workplace safety modifications - such as dangerous goods storage cabinets, guard rails, traffic control markings, ergonomic furniture or ventilation.

Unfortunately the rebate is not available for the implementation of online computer systems that help manage Workplace Health and Safety such as Work Safety Interactive.
