Tasmanian workers and workplaces close to better protections
Guy Barnett, Minister for Resources

Tasmanian workers and workplaces are getting closer to having better legal protections with the Police Offences Amendment (Workplace Protection) Bill 2022 being debated in the Legislative Council this week.
This Bill will protect the rights of workers and deter unlawful interference with workplaces, by strengthening the law of trespass and obstruction, making it easier to understand and enforce.
We have been elected at three consecutive elections with workplace protection policies.
The Annual Report 2020, was released at the AGM and includes the Chair and General Manager reports as well as all financial statements.
The new-look report includes updates on ForestFit, AUSTimber 2021/21, and The PODW program. AFCA also recognised the hard work and contribution of forest contractors during the 19/20 bushfire clean-up and recovery.
