World Day for Health and Safety at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day

On 28 April each year we recognise World Day for Safety and Health at Work (World Day) and Workers’ Memorial Day. This day raises awareness about the importance of work health and safety and honours those who have died from work-related injury or illness.

Our communication activities are guided by the global World Day theme set by the International Labour Organization and the Workers’ Memorial Day theme set by the International Trade Union Confederation.

Occupational lung disease campaign 

In May 2021, we launched a national education and awareness campaign for occupational lung diseases. The campaign focuses on micro and small to medium businesses in the key industries of manufacturing, construction, agriculture and engineered stone workers. The campaign ran through to the end of 2021. 

For more information, go to the Occupational lung diseases campaign page.  

National Safe Work Month

We have delivered a National Safe Work Month campaign annually in October since 2009. National Safe Work Month aims to improve the wider community’s awareness and knowledge of WHS and workers’ compensation by providing access to a range of resources, provoking discussion and showcasing good work health and safety practice. 

The campaign encourages everyone to participate in activities which promote work health and safety during October.
