Commonwealth Child Safe Framework

The Commonwealth Child Safe Framework is a whole-of-government policy that sets minimum standards for Australian Government entities to create and maintain behaviours and practices that are safe for children.

Under the Framework, entities are required to publish an annual statement of compliance with the Framework, including an overview of the entity’s child safety risk assessment.

The Office of the Fair Work Ombudsman is committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young people in connection with our work and with our employees. The Annual Statement of Compliance reflects the Office of the Fair Work Ombudsman's commitment to the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework and the practical application across the agency.
