This year's theme is “Be A Safety Champion” 

Safe Work Australia was established in 2008 to develop national policy and guidance for WHS and workers’ compensation. Since then, they have 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, work-related injury and disease still cost the Australian community over $60 billion dollars a year.

Skin cancer is a burden on the public health system and is workplace related disease. Are your workers required to work outdoors? If so, are they SunSmart?
