Helping business owners understand the true cost of an unsafe workplace is the aim of a free seminar coming to Tamworth.
The seminar will be held at the Quality Hotel Powerhouse on Tuesday 18 June, and will help business owners understand Australia's complex Workplace Health and Safety laws, and the things they need to do to remain compliant.
Employsure Business Development Manager David Williams said small business owners are crying out for help when managing regulation and compliance.
"Australia has an incredibly complex workplace relations system that small business owners find hard to navigate, and that's especially true for work health and safety," Mr Williams said.
"Managing risks and maintaining a safe workplace should be a priority for all business owners.
"Already this year, more than 60 Australian workers have been killed at work. Each year, work-related injuries and illnesses cost the Australian economy $61.8 billion. The personal and financial cost of unsafe workplaces are enormous."
"Business owners need to have systems and policies in place that demonstrate they've done everything they can to reduce injuries and illnesses in the workplace. Not only does it help protect their workers, it can help protect their business in the event of an accident.
"We just want to make life easier for them by explaining their obligations, and the things they should and shouldn't do to meet them."
