Federal Safety Commissioner’s 2008-09 Progress Report released

The Federal Safety Commissioner (FSC) today released the 2008-09 Progress Report. The report is the fourth in a series that highlights the work done by the FSC and her office during the financial year.

While administration of the Scheme has been the primary focus in 2008-09, safety leadership remained a key priority along with the education and advice activities for our growing number of stakeholders.

The last financial year saw a significant growth in the scope and coverage of the Scheme. For example, there were 147 companies accredited at the end of the period, an increase of 52 per cent from the previous year. Growth of the scheme is still continuing with a further 25 companies gaining accreditation since 1 July this year.

The expansion of the Scheme is also reflected in the increase in the number of Australian Government funded projects covered by the Scheme. At 30 June 2009, 191 projects were covered by the Scheme which represents a threefold increase from the previous year.

The report also includes a summary of the performance of companies accredited under the Scheme.

A copy of the report is available on the Publications Page.
