National Safe Work Month in October focuses on addressing work health and safety issues in the workplace. Last year 188 workers were killed at work.

This year’s theme is:

‘Be safe. Be healthy. Because

It’s deliberately left open so you can add your own reasons for being safe and healthy at work.

Safe Work Australia has released an information kit with resources available to raise awareness of work health and safety. The kit includes a range of products including posters, fact sheets, logos, web banners and national safety statistics. It can be downloaded from the National Safe Work Month web page.

The page also includes information on the events lined up for month, including the National Safe Work Month Workplace Participation Reward, National Safe Work Month smart phone application and the Virtual Seminar Series.

A host of events for your state can also be found at the Safe Work Month web page.

Be safe. Regards,
