October has been designated National Safe Work Month and this year Safe Work Australia Chair Diane Smith-Gander is urging all Australians to take a moment to consider safety in their workplace.
As Ms Smith-Gander explains a safety incident can occur in an instant and a moment’s forethought can prevent an incident from taking place. That is why this year we are being urged to take a moment for safety.
This can be done by taking some time each morning to talk to workers about the hazards and risks present on a worksite.
Last year, 191 people died on worksites across Australia and 106,000 people made a serious injury claim.
This month you should take a moment to consider safety and share your opinions using the hashtag #mysafetymoment.”
