Safe Work Australia has announced the theme for this year’s National Safe Work Month.
The month of October if Safe Work Month in Australia and this year’s theme is “A moment is all it takes”.
CEO Michelle Baxter said that while a safety incident can happen in a moment and in any workplace, a moment’s forethought can prevent harm.
“Taking a safety moment can be as simple as spending five minutes every morning talking with your team about the hazards and risks in your workplace, and how to prevent harm,” Ms. Baxter said.
Safe Work Australia said it will publish a range of resources on the National Safe Work Month website to help workplaces take a safety moment this October.
“Injury or death in the workplace changes lives forever,” said Ms. Baxter.
“This October, take a moment to consider what workplace safety means to you.”
