Prioritise Safety in the Lead up to Christmas- Businesses Warned

Businesses and workers have been reminded to prioritise safety in the lead-up to Christmas, a time of year that is typically marked by higher injury rates.

During this time of the year, people tend to relax and slack off when it comes to safety, this can lead to accidents.

WorkSafe WA issued a reminder to pay particular attention to safety before and after Christmas.

This year 3 WA workers have been killed in workplace accidents and one of those was on a construction site.

Another reason for the rise in incidents around this time is because in many industries, workers and employers can feel pressured to complete projects on time and before the festive season break. WorkSafe reminded people that this cannot come at the expense of safety.
