Every Month Should be Safe Work Month

October is safe work month, so employers and workers are being encouraged to have the conversation about how safe their workplace really is. It’s a good opportunity to raise awareness, and for businesses to reflect on how they can improve on their safety commitments. Safe Work Australia say no industry should be unsafe to work in and no death or injury is acceptable – and we agree. That’s why we believe every month should be safe work month. Because despite considering ourselves an advanced country, we have a long way to go in our health and safety goals.

Australia has a fatality rate 2.5 times higher than the United Kingdom. Between 2015 and 2016, 182 Australians died as a result of a workplace incident. Machine operators, labourers, and trade workers continue to be the most affected. Between them, agriculture, manufacturing and construction saw almost 30 000 serious claims in 2016 alone. And poor workplace safety is expensive. Work-related injury and disease cost Australia $61.8 billion a year – a staggering $5000 per worker. And it’s costly for business too – the average compensation claim cost the company $10 800, and resulted in the employee missing over five weeks of work.

But this doesn’t have to be the case. These incidents are preventable with an effective safety management system, and a year-round commitment to safety. There are simple tools and processes you can put in place to reduce risk and to make sure your workers get home safely at the end of the day. And the benefits don’t stop there. HSEQ software helps you to be compliant, while reducing costs surrounding insurance, worker replacement, and workers compensation. It can also enhance your reputation by signaling to your workers and customers that you prioritise safety.
