As Safe Work Week is being observed from 28 October to 1 November, SafeWork SA reminds everyone to take part in ensuring workplace safety.
“Everyone has a part to play in ensuring workplace safety, with life-long learning key to improving our understanding and practice of it,” said Marie Boland, A/Executive Director of SafeWork SA.
“With constant change in the workplace andsafety improvements always possible, the real question for all of us is can we afford not to take a fresh look at work health and safety.
“Making workplaces safer is what Safe Work Week is all about. This year we have more than 60 free information sessions plus the opportunity for people to host their own activities promoting safety practices relevant to their workplaces,” she said.
“We will also look at ‘An Incident Waiting to Happen: The Hypothetical’ with Prof Rick Sarre, Professor of Law at the University of South Australia moderating an all too common work health and safety scenario.
“To secure a seat at the hypothetical or information sessions, book online and get ready to take a fresh look at work health and safety,” said Ms Boland.
Free resources to get involved and discuss safety in your workplace are available in the SafeWork SA website.
The Safe Work Week will be concluded with the Safe Work Awards ceremony, which will be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre on Friday 1 November 2013.
