October is National Safe Work Month - A month dedicated to raising awareness about WHS (work health and safety).
Everyone in the community can be impacted by work-related injury and illness. Last year in Australia, Safe Work Australia preliminary data shows that around 180 people died while doing their job. Around 107,000 people made a workers’ compensation claim for serious injury or illness in 2017-18. That's a startling amount of injuries with the potential to be avoided!
"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."
The theme of this month is 'Think Safe. Work Safe. Be Safe' - Aiming to target all aspects of workplace processes of safety from the individual up to the company wide level.
"No one should be unsafe at work and no injury or death is acceptable. There is more that we can do, and together we can make a difference."
At FastAid, we'd like to take this opportunity to discuss how we're helping the workplace community to be safer, and what steps can be taken to avoid preventable work place injury.
