October marks Work Safe month in Australia, an event designed to bring attention to workplace health and safety. Safe Work Australia orchestrates the event annually, which began in 2005. This year’s theme is “Be Safe, Be Healthy” with a rotating focus each week of the month. Week one’s focus is on improving actions in the workplace, week two on all workers getting home safely, week three on good business sense, and week four is on looking to the future.
There are several ways to participate in Work Safe month. Events will occur at the national, state, territory and community levels throughout October. Registration in a Virtual Seminar Series is available on the Safe Work Australia website. Posters and other communications are available for download on the website as well to use within your organisation. Enrol your workplace in the Participation Reward for a chance to win prizes. There is also a free smartphone app available with all the latest information available about events and access to the seminar series.
As part of WorkSafe Month, myosh’s Adrian Manessis will be working with WorkSafe Tasmania to host a virtual seminar on Using Software Technology and Mobile Apps for WHS Management on Monday October 19 from 10-11am (UTC+10).
