Details:

WorkSafe ACT achieves its objectives through a combination of compliance and enforcement, awareness raising, education, inspection and investigation. It is responsible for monitoring and ensuring compliance by duty holders with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (WHS Act) and associated legislation for workers’ compensation and dangerous substances. WorkSafe ACT is a fully independent office headed by the Work Health and Safety Commissioner, who is the Territory’s regulator.

Over the next 12 months, a planned program of work will be implemented to improve our operational efficiency and effectiveness. The Statement of Operational Intent sets out the operational priorities for 2020-2021.

The Regulatory Policy Officer will provide advice on legislative, policy and program issues related to WorkSafe ACT’s regulatory functions and responsibilities described above. The position will be required to undertake research and analysis to assist with the review and implementation of ACT Government policy and legislative amendments. To achieve this, the occupant of this position is required to be aware of current national and jurisdictional decisions and issues relating to workplace safety and regulatory operations.

The ACT Public Service supports workforce diversity and is committed to creating an inclusive workplace. As part of this commitment, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people with disability, culturally diverse people and those who identify as LGBTIQ are encouraged to apply.

The Regulatory Policy Officer will be responsible for ensuring WorkSafe ACT meets its legislative obligations, including appointments and delegations.

Eligibility/Other Requirements:

  • Knowledge of workplace health and safety, workers’ compensation and/or industrial relations legislation and issues is desirable.
  • Tertiary qualifications (or partial completion) in a related area are desirable but not essential.
  • Notes: This position will be moving to a new workplace designed for activity-based working (ABW) in 2021. Under ABW arrangements, officers will not have a designated workstation/desk. An order of merit will be established from this selection process and may be used to fill future identical vacancies over the next 12 months. Selection may be based on application and referee reports only.
