Commit to Safety – Safe Work Australia Urges

Source: https://www.safeworkaustralia.gov.au/

October is National Safe Work Month and Safe Work Australia is encouraging all employers and workers to commit to working towards a safe and healthy workplace.

The theme of this year’s National Safe Work Month is Sharing safety knowledge and experience benefits everyone.

Safe Work Australia Chair, Diane Smith-Gander called for organisations to run safety initiatives and share their experiences so that everyone can benefit.

She explained that work related injury and disease cost the community $61.8 billion annually, so we all need to commit to establishing safe workplaces.

The greatest cost is immeasurable, the cost of grief and trauma to workers and their families.

She explains a comprehensive campaign kit has been released on the National Safe Work Month website, including logos, posters, flyers, graphics and messages as well as suggestions for safety activities and other guidance. There is also a competition offering $5000 in cash to the organisation with best safety initiative.
