Continuous improvement

The 2019 Best Practice Review of Work Health and Safety in the Northern Territory (the Lyons Review) identified a range of opportunities to improve NT WorkSafe’s effectiveness in communicating, administering, and enforcing the compliance functions of the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) Act 2011.

Throughout 2021–26, we will continue to implement the accepted recommendations from the Lyons Review.

We are committed to ongoing assessment of our performance across our areas of responsibility, identifying opportunities for improvement and taking action to address any weaknesses.
