Senator Michaelia Cash, the Minister for Employment has launched National Safe Work Month 2017. And this year, the annual initiative from Safe Work Australia is accompanied by a wealth of resources and incentives aimed at improving workplace safety.

Senator Cash described National Safe Work Month as: “a time to celebrate that Australia is one of the safest places in the world to work, but also a time when we all commit to building even safer workplaces.” She went on to highlight the importance of sharing safety knowledge and experience, and encouraged staff to run safety initiatives in their workplaces and share these initiatives on social media.

The Safe Work Australia website is a major focus for the campaign, featuring a generic campaign kit and broadcasting two seminars on “Building a bully-free workplace” (10th October) and “WHS in major events” (24th October).

Part of the campaign kit is the thought-provoking “Five steps to a safe and healthy workplace”, taking the reader through the process of design safe, source safe, use safe, keep safe, and repeat – the last stage reminding everyone that making sure that a workplace is healthy and safe is a continuous cycle of improvement.

Safe Work Australia is also offering $5000 to the organisation showcasing the most outstanding workplace health and safety initiative using the campaign kit during National Safe Work Month.
