October is National Safe Work Month

Safe Work

October is National Safe Work Month – a time to commit to building a safe and healthy workplace.

Being healthy and safe means being free from physical and psychological harm. No job should be unsafe and no death or injury is acceptable. A safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone. This is why, during October each year, Safe Work Australia asks businesses, employers and workers across Australia to join National Safe Work Month and commit to building safe and healthy workplaces for all Australians.

SafeWork Australia has released the theme and campaign kit for National Safe Work Month 2022 and launched the official campaign on October 1.

The theme for 2022 is ‘Know safety, work safely’ – encouraging everyone to make health and safety in the workplace a priority.

The campaign will run throughout October. The campaign kit has digital customisable resources.
