Work Safe Month 2018
What is Safe Work Month?
Safe Work Month in October is part of a national event that encourages all working Queenslanders to get involved in safety at their workplace, helping to reduce the incidence of death, injury and disease.
Why it’s important
The majority of working Queenslanders put in a hard day’s work and come home a little tired or dirty, but safe. Tragically though, around 17 Queenslanders die each year as a result of traumatic workplace incidents, and over 5000 suffer a permanent injury. These deaths and injuries carry with them a devastating and personal impact on workers and their families, with a significant financial cost to the Queensland community.
Safe Work Month is the perfect time to remind people how they can continue to make Queensland workplaces safer. What you can do to improve work health and safety Safety at work is an issue that concerns everyone – employers, employees, their families and the community. At work Everyone at work plays a role in reducing the risk of injury, illness and death in a workplace.
Hold your own event in Safe Work Month and highlight what your company is doing to make the workplace safer. Ensure staff are involved in identifying risks and finding solutions on a regular basis and work with companies in your supply chain to ensure the safety of all workers involved in producing your product or service.
Events are being run state wide throughout October for Safe Work Month 2018 to raise awareness of the importance of work health and safety and return to work.
