Stay safe and well during Safe Work Month
Held nationally every October, Safe Work Month aims to raise community and industry awareness about the importance of work health and safety, best practice rehabilitation, and return to work.
But it’s not just something we should focus on just in October—safer, healthier workplaces are for everyone, every day.
Several events are being held throughout the month covering topics such as good work design, incident preparedness, enhancing your team’s safety skills, creating a positive culture around workplace safety and wellbeing, and more.
Keep health and safety top of mind 365 days a year. You can:
- find events near you
- download free resources
- read stories from real people about the personal impacts injury can have on workers and their families.
