Community Health & Safety alerts


These alerts have been provided to give you a more detailed understanding of specific cases that may relate to your building, and to help you determine the priority that may need to be allocated to a specific risk.

They will also give you a better understanding of any changes that may be introduced by each state authority, or changes to the overall legislation.

These safety alerts and updates are published by Safe Work Australia and departments of WHS in different states that highlights an incident or unsafe practice to industry. They outline the required action to be taken to prevent the incident from reoccurring or to prevent the unsafe practice.

Please note that it is important to report any incidents that may occur at your property, and to advise us of any hazards that you consider a potential risk to your strata scheme. These can be reported direct to your strata manager, strata committee member, or by calling our Community Health & Safety service on 1300 065 024.
