Victoria’s on-hire workers, also known as labour hire, are continuing to work more safely than ever before, according to WorkSafe’s latest report Labour Hire Claims Performance.

The number of claims made by on-hire workers per $10 million dollars of remuneration has dropped by 4% to 2.05% and with the most significant movements occurring for transport, postal and warehousing on-hire workers.

In the 12 months from June 2012 to June 2013 claims made by onhire/labour hire workers decreased by 4% along with non-labour hire which also decreased by 4% which is reflective of the positive contributions made by the on-hire industry to a large number ofbusinesses throughout Victoria and Australia at large.

Denis Dadds, head of the RCSA Safety & Risk Working Group and RCSA Director said, “Worker safety in the on hire industry has made great progress over the last decade and our industry will continue to work at maintaining this momentum in safety performance”.
