April 28th was World Day for Safety and Health at Work, as well as Workers’ Memorial Day, promoting health and safety in the workplace and remembering those who died on the job or as a result of a work-related injury or illness.

SafeWork Australia urged employers and employees to promote a safe and healthy future in the workplace.

Safe Work reminded us of the factors we need to consider when planning for the future in the workplace where safety is concerned,

  • Consider new technology and increasing use of the internet in the workplace.
  • The shift in employment patterns and structures as well as work organised through digital means.
  • The aging workforce and increased levels of stress and chronic disease means we need new ways of ensuring a safe and healthy work environment.
  • The new technologies being adopted not only have the potential to make workplaces safer but can also introduce new challenges and risks.
