Workplace Health and Safety in NSW has received a $10 million boost to help slash red tape for small businesses and to increase the reach of workplace safety regulators in the state.

In the 2018-2019 budget, government made a significant investment in SafeWork initiatives to address workplace health and safety in the state.

The Minister for Innovation and Better Regulation Matt Kean said the funding for SafeWork NSW for 2018-19 will include rebates for small businesses committed to worker health and safety, Roadmap Health and Safety Landscape initiatives, development of a mentally healthy workplaces strategy and expanding the Quad Bike Safety Improvement Program.

Mr Kean went on to stress the importance of getting workers home safely at the end of the day, something the government is committed to.
