This October we will focus on a different health and safety area for each week of National Safe Work Month.
Week 1 (1-8 October)
Working together to manage risks at work
Regular WHS risk assessments will help prevent injuries or fatalities at your workplace.
In week 1 of National Safe Work Month we review the complete risk assessment process, from identification and assessment of hazards to the selection, implementation and review of control measures.
Week 2 (9-15 October)
Working together to protect workers' mental health
Managing psychosocial risks benefits workers, decreases staff turnover and absenteeism and improves organisational performance.
In week 2 of National Safe Work Month we explore Working together to protect workers’ mental health by highlighting how you can identify psychosocial hazards and use WHS control measures to manage the risks.
Week 4 (23-31 October)
Working together to ensure a safe and healthy workplace
To prevent harm to workers we need to ensure that WHS is core to how we do our business in Australia.
In week 4 we will focus on the future of work health and safety, including changing patterns and ways of working.
