Small biz bus at Austi beach

THE Small Biz Bus and WorkCover will be at Austinmer Beach car park  next Wednesday (January 28) from 9am to 3pm.

WorkCover and the Office of the NSW Small Business Commissioner are joining forces to bring support to small businesses aboard the Small Biz Bus in 2015.

Minister for Small Business John Barilaro today announced the strategic partnership and encouraged small businesses in Crookwell, Austinmer and Condobolin to take advantage of the one stop shop that the Bus provides.

“WorkCover provides an important service to the small business community that fosters a sustainable and safe working environment for NSW,” Mr Barilaro said.

“Small businesses will be able to access face to face, personalised business advice from a Small Biz Connect advisor and consult with a WorkCover representative in one convenient location.

“Local small businesses and workers will receive the latest safety and return to work advice with WorkCover staff to provide practical advice on how work health and safety laws, licensing changes, workers compensation and recover at work programs affect small businesses.

“All small businesses that speak to us may also be eligible for a rebate of up to $500 through our Small Business Rebate Program which can be used to purchase and install safety improvements.”
