The Theme of This Years National Safe Work Month Announced

Safe Work Australia has just announced the theme of this year’s National Safe Work Month which is held annually in October.

The theme this year is ” A moment is all it takes”.

CEO Michelle Baxter pointed out that while a safety incident takes only a moment to happen in any workplace, a moment’s forsight can also prevent harm.

She said its important that people take time each morning to discuss safety with their team, including hazards and workplace risks as well as how to prevent harm.

A range of resources will be available on Safe Work’s National Safe Work Month website to help businesses make the most of Safe Month.
