Your Safety

The AWU Victorian Branch is committed to Health and Safety in all workplaces and has a team of OHS specialists who constantly petition for improvement to the overall standards of our industries, as well as provide direct support to our members and HSRs.

If you are not sure about a practice or process in your workplace that you feel may be unsafe, you should consider the below resources to help you decide what to do.

The AWU strongly believes that the best way to ensure your safety and the safety of others in your workplace is through the election of Health and Safety Representatives, in conjunction with your union. Through our OHS specialists and effective communication throughout your workplace, we will continue to move towards safer workplaces.
