National Safe Work Month weekly themes
Supporting the overarching theme of know safety, work safely, each week focuses on a different health and safety area.
Host a SafeTea event
You are invited to host a SafeTea event at your workplace. Grab a cuppa, gather your team and start an important conversation about health and safety at work.
How to get involved:
Follow these steps to host a SafeTea chat at work:
- Download co-brandable resources, including a SafeTea chat checklist, posters, video-call background and social tile.
- Grab a cuppa, gather your team and have a chat about safety in your workplace.
- Follow us on social media to keep updated with new information and materials.
- Get creative by decorating your SafeTeacup! You could wrap your teacup in caution tape, safety stickers or even a tiny high vis vest. Make sure to use our SafeTea photo frame and post a photo to social media using the hashtags #safeworkmonth #KnowSafety #WorkSafely
Mental Health Day
As part of National Safe Work Month, Safe Work Australia recognises World Mental Health Day on 10 October 2022.
Persons conducting a business or undertaking (PCBUs), such as employers, must eliminate or minimise psychosocial risks so far as is reasonably practicable.
