Engaging alongside other agencies – June engagement update

The Labour Hire Authority (LHA) program of industry engagement continues in June, with the Hort Connections expo and an information webinar with WorkSafe Victoria.

In May, Labour Hire Licensing Commissioner Steve Dargavel presented a webinar for recently licensed providers and new ABN holders in key labour hire industries.

The session was very well attended, with over 150 attendees taking the opportunity to learn about their obligations, ask questions and engage with the Labour Hire Licensing Commissioner.

The webinar incorporated several interactive elements and attendees gave positive feedback about how engaging the session was.

LHA is expanding its webinar offerings in 2024, providing engagement opportunities for businesses throughout Victoria, across a range of times and days.

LHA also held an information session for providers and hosts at the Bendigo GovHub on 22 May – the event generated rich discussion among attendees and valuable questions and answers.

Details and registrations for all upcoming information sessions are available via the Events page on the LHA website.
