"Every year in October, employers and workers participate in National Safe Work Month," said Minister O'Dwyer.

"It's a time to commit to building safer workplaces for all Australians. A time to ensure your workplace is free from physical and psychological harm, and that every Australian has a right to do their job safely and free from harm.

"We're lucky that Australia is one of the safest places in the world to work, but even though we're doing well, no industry should be unsafe to work in and no death or injury is acceptable.

"This October, I ask that you take a moment to consider what workplace safety means to you.

"While an incident can happen in a moment, a moment's forethought can prevent harm. This October, take a moment for workplace safety."
