This year's theme

The theme for this October’s National Safe Work Month is “A moment is all it takes.”

While a safety incident can happen in a moment and in any workplace, a moment’s forethought can prevent harm.

This year, commit to taking a safety moment every day in your workplace.

This could 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.

Share your safety moment using #mysafetymoment.
