Safe Work Australia Gearing Up for National Safe Work Month

Safe Work Australia, the agency responsible for developing Australia’s national policy on work health and safety (WHS), is reminding workers and employers alike throughout Australia that October is National Safe Work Month.

For this year, Safe Work Australia (SWA) has chosen the theme “Be a Safety Champion” to encourage employers and workers from every occupation and industry to take the lead in improving work health and safety. To help spread this message to workplaces across Australia, SWA has created a National Safe Work Month Campaign Kit containing wide range of materials including workplace posters, flyers, graphics, social media content and virtual seminars to help educate Australians and generate greater awareness of the work health and safety issues that affect them.
