  • Contributing to the review of WorkSafe's corporate planning documents, performance reporting against these plans and the analysis of financial data for inclusion in the State's financial reports; and
  • Assisting with the implementation of the recommendations of a recent financial sustainability review of the State's insurance agencies.
