WorkSafe Victoria is celebrating its 30th year as Victoria’s workplace health and safety regulator, having started operations on 1 September 1985.

The regulator was established as a single Government insurance scheme, WorkCare replacing more than 50 insurers. In 1996 the organisation’s power was increased to regulate work health and safety.

The organisation has been successful in improving workplace safety in the state dramatically. The number of injuries in the state went from 58,700 in 1985 to 26,500 in 2014 and 1.27 million injured workers have received support from the scheme.
