Safe work month is part of a national event that encourages all working Queenslander's to get involved with safety to help reduce the incidence of death, injury and disease in the workplace.
Everyone in the workplace has a part to play in reducing the risk of injury, illness and death in a workplace. Tragically, around 17 Queenslander's 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 the workplace safer.
