Safe Work Australia has announced the theme for this year’s National Safe Work Month, which takes place every October.
CEO Michelle Baxter said that while a safety incident can happen in a moment and in any workplace, a moment’s forethought can prevent harm.
“Taking a safety moment can be as simple as spending five minutes every morning talking with your team about the hazards and risks in your workplace, and how to prevent harm,” Ms Baxter said.
Over the coming months, we will publish a range of resources on the National Safe Work Month website to help workplaces take a safety moment this October. Keep an eye on our social media and sign up to our mailing list to be the first to know.
“Injury or death in the workplace changes lives forever,” said Ms Baxter.
“This October, take a moment to consider what workplace safety means to you.”
