The study looks at the awareness levels and behaviors of small businesses (less than 20 employees) regarding workplace OH+S. The results will inform WorkCover NSW of the efficacy of its small business interventions and improve its engagement with small business at varying stages in their lifecycles, with the overall aim of promoting a higher level of understanding of issues and compliance with OH+S legislation among small businesses.
