To help you prepare for National Safe Work Month – Work Health and Safety through COVID-19, new work health and safety (WHS) resources have been published on the National Safe Work Month website, including:
- Join National Safe Work Month and commit to keeping people safe and healthy at work information sheet
- WHS best practice checklist for employers
- Keeping WHS a priority in your workplace information sheet
- COVID-19 WHS case studies.
Employers, small businesses, duty holders and work health and safety representatives are encouraged to download these resources and distribute them within their workplaces to lead WHS during National Safe Work Month.
Supporting the overarching National Safe Work Month theme - Work Health and Safety through COVID-19, each week of October will focus on a WHS topic, including mental health and using data to create better WHS policy. Each topic has a downloadable poster and social media tiles so you can easily promote them in your workplace and to your networks.
Don’t forget to use #safeworkmonth and #safetytogether, when promoting your organisation’s National Safe Work Month initiatives on social media.

Together, we can create safer workplaces for everyone.
