SafeWork NSW launches ‘Speak Up, Save Lives’ app
Following the release of the ‘Speak Up, Save Lives’ web platform last year, SafeWork NSW has announced the launch of a mobile reporting app.
“The app is a quick, easy and confidential way for anyone to report unsafe worksite or work practices using only their mobile phone,” NSW Minister for Better Regulation and Innovation Kevin Anderson said.
“If you spot anything risky, play your part in protecting your own safety as well as that of your work mates by immediately reporting it to SafeWork.”
Since the ‘Speak Up, Save Lives’ web platform was launched last October, the regulator has received 1,647 reports from workers, handed out 472 improvement notices and issued $56,880 in penalties.
The app can be downloaded from the Apple or Android store, or by visiting speakup.safework.nsw.gov.au.
