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 Fair Work Ombudsman and Registered Organisations Commission Entity (FWOROCE) 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 FWOROCE’s commitment to the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework and the practical application across the agency.
