National Safe Work Month is October

Sun 1 Oct 2017 - Tue 31 Oct 2017

Overview

This year's theme is “Sharing safety knowledge and experience benefits everyone” and we want you to share the things you do, both big and small, that make your workplace safer and healthier. 

Safe Work Australia was established in 2008 to develop national policy and guidance for WHS and workers’ compensation. Since then, we’ve been running national campaigns to raise awareness about WHS in the Australian working community.

Since Safe Work Australia’s inception, there has been a steady decline in the rate of work-related fatalities and workers’ compensation claims.

However, we also know that work-related injury and disease cost the Australian community $61.8 billion in a year. Skin cancer is a burden on the public health system and is workplace related disease.
