WorkSafe Victoria launched an advertising campaign which shared the opinions of working Victorians to highlight the changing nature of what health and safety at work means.
People from a range of industries talk about their own workplace health and safety views.
According to WorkSafe Chief Executive Clare Amies, the campaign will hopefully reinforce the importance of physical and mental health, safety and wellbeing for every worker.
She highlighted that as the workforce ages, the industry mix evolves and people work more flexibly and in broader types of employment, the concept of ‘work’ itself is changing.
She also said that health and safety must include prevention of mental injury, as well as physical health and safety.
