SWA external activities
A safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone. Being healthy and safe means being free from physical and psychological harm. No job should be unsafe and no death or injury is acceptable. Work health and safety is for everyone and anyone can get involved in the many events and initiatives being held during National Safe Work Month across the country. This October think safe. work safe. be safe. at your workplace by planning and implementing work health and safety procedures.
Find the events happening in your region or get involved by creating your own initiatives with the resources from the National Safe Work Month campaign kit.
Mental Health Day
As part of National Safe Work Month, Safe Work Australia recognises Mental Health Day on 10 October 2021.
Employers must eliminate or minimise work-related risk to psychological health and safety so far as is reasonably practicable.
Download the work-related psychological health and safety guide for more information or talk to your WHS regulator.
SWA and Lung Foundation Australia collaboration
Safe Work Australia collaborated with Lung Foundation Australia to develop two fact sheets for our Clean Air. Clear Lungs. campaign on occupational lung diseases.
- What are occupational lung diseases? – an information sheet outlining the different types of lung diseases that a person can be exposed to at work.
- Protecting your lungs – an information sheet about how to find help if you develop an occupational lung disease.
People at work – assessing psychosocial risks
People at Work is a free online tool to help businesses identify, assess and manage psychosocial risks at work. The online tool also provides guidance on practical ways to manage these risks at work.
Safe Work Australia is a proud partner of BeUpstanding – a free, evidence-based workplace health behaviour change program designed to address the significant work health and safety and financial costs associated with prolonged sitting.
