Safe Work Month Event Planning Toolkit Released
The Queensland Government has recently released an event planning toolkit to help you get involved in Safe Work Month 2018 and show your organisation’s support for Queenslanders’ staying safe at work. Communicating your support to your workforce, their families, and the community helps build a better safety culture.
Safe Work Month in October is part of a national event that encourages all working Queenslanders to get involved in safety at their workplace, helping to reduce the incidence of death, injury and disease.
The majority of working Queenslanders put in a hard day’s work and come home a little tired or dirty, but safe. Tragically though, around 17 Queenslanders die each year as a result of traumatic workplace incidents, and over 5000 suffer a permanent injury. These deaths and injuries carry with them a devastating and personal impact on workers and their families, with a significant financial cost to the Queensland community. Safe Work Month is the perfect time to remind people how they can continue to make Queensland workplaces safer.
