Workers compensation costs faced by Goulburn Mulwaree council are lower now then they were a decade ago.


Figures presented to councillors show council workers costs last year of less then two hundred thousand dollars.


This compares with more than $1.2 million in 2005.


As of the 31st of March this year there were twenty-one workers compensation claims, six of which were current.


Goulburn Mulwaree attributes its success to increased interaction with people injured, a health and well-being programme, staff participation in information and awareness sessions and regular visits from Safe Work NSW inspectors.

It appears that Goulburn Mulwaree's mayor, Bob Kirk is gaining traction with NSW government policy advisors on establishing incentives for keeping business in the state.


Councillor Kirk has previously levelled criticism on the government for business squeezed out of western Sydney moving to Victoria.


Last week the mayor held talks with policy advisors for the Regional Development minister, John Barilaro.


Councillor Kirk says the advisiors' realisation of losing business from the state, is starting to sink in.
