THE WorkCover Safety Bus will visit Nowra today to provide work health and safety advice to local businesses and workers.
The safety bus, as well as WorkCover health and safety experts, will be in Junction Court from 10am to 2pm.
WorkCover health and safety experts will provide practical advice to local businesses and workers about applying health and safety laws in their workplaces.

There will be a range of materials on the bus including codes of practice, fact sheets, and frequently asked questions to inform employers and workers on how they can keep workplaces as safe as possible.
