My Department has a supporting role in the Be Winter Ready campaign. Officials from my Department attend the Government Task Force on Emergency Planning and relevant sub-groups.

In support of the campaign, my Department has published severe weather advice for business on its website. It is also promoting the campaign, from its website and on Twitter. In severe weather events, other relevant advice may be posted on my Department's website or that of the Workplace Relations Commission.

These supports have been provided using internal staff resources and no expenditure has been incurred on external consultancy, advertising or communications services in support of this work.
