About National Safe Work Month

Individuals, their families and the broader community are all impacted by work-related injury and illness. Safe Work Australia preliminary data shows that around 169 people died while doing their job in 2021. Around 130,195 people made a workers’ compensation claim for serious injury or illness in 2020-21p*

*Preliminary data subject to revision in future years as further claims are finalised. 

There is more that we can do, and together we can make a difference

This is why, during October each year, we ask businesses, employers and workers across Australia to join National Safe Work Month and commit to building safe and healthy workplaces for all Australians.
