2017 was not a good year for safety in Victoria, if the number of workplace fatalities are anything to go by.

In 2017, there were 27 workplace fatalities, which was the highest toll since 2009.

WorkSafe has reminded all Victorian businesses to make safety a priority, rethinking their safety strategy to make 2018 a safer year.

Of the 27 fatalities in the state last year, 20 occurred in regional Victoria and 7 in the greater metropolitan Melbourne.
