Phoney inspectors on the prowl
SafeWork SA has received reports about two people impersonating work health and safety inspectors.
The two people have threatened to fine workers or companies under the Work Health and Safety Act, the authority said.
“The employers believed these people to be SafeWork SA inspectors, but they were not.”
SafeWork SA is encouraging employers to require proof of identity and to “check the credentials of any unknown person who asks for access to a workplace”.
