A workplace hazard is anything in the design or management of work that has the potential to cause injury to a person or persons. It doesn’t matter where you work - in an office, in a vehicle, or outside – there are potential work health and safety hazards in all workplaces that need to be managed.
During week 4 of National Safe Work Month, we are focusing on work health and safety hazards inside and out. We have a wide range of resources and new data to help PCBUs identify hazards and manage and control these risks as far as is reasonably practicable.
Amongst these resources we have:
- The latest national work health and safety statistics
- Infographics highlighting how to wear a P2/N95 mask when there is a bushfire near or at your workplace and how to work safely in bushfire smoke
- Updated guidance for the management of elevating work platforms (EWPs)
- New guidance on managing risk in construction - concrete pumping
- Updated guide for managing the risks of working in heat

Think safe, work safe and be safe this October and commit to a safe and healthy workplace.
