SafeWork NSW has launched a campaign to make the state the safest in Australia.

The $32 million campaign “Safety starts with you”, was created out of a response to the rising number of workplace injuries and illneses in NSW across all industries.

Not only are people being injured and killed on the job but the economy is losing millions as a result. According to statistics, there were 30,902 major workplace injuries and illnesses in 2015/16 and 60 fatalities.

The cost of these incidents to the economy was $17.3 billion or 3.7 per cent of gross state product.
