WORLD DAY FOR HEALTH & SAFETY @ WORK 2023
Friday 28 April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day.
This year’s theme is ‘A safe and healthy working environment is a fundamental principle and right at work’. The day provides an opportunity to reflect on how to prevent work-related occupational diseases, deaths, injuries, and illnesses. It is also a day to remember those that have died from a work-related injury or illness.
By raising awareness of work health and safety (WHS) issues and taking action to eliminate or minimise health and safety risks at work, we can help prevent further work-related fatalities and injuries.
While the number of work-related fatalities in Australia has been steadily decreasing over the last decade, any workplace death is tragic and unacceptable.
World Day is a good time to recognise the importance of work health and safety to prevent any work-related fatalities and injuries.
WHS risk management can be as simple as a discussion with teammates or your manager. It is also important to remember to manage psychological and mental health risks.
We encourage everyone to raise awareness about health and safety in the workplace and recommend visiting these sites for more information.
