Get Ready for Australia October Safe Work Month

In Australia, October is National Safe Work Month which raises awareness of work health and safety across industry.

This year’s theme, Work Health and Safety through COVID-19, acknowledges and reflects the wide-reaching impacts of COVID-19 on Australian businesses, employers and workers. 

Individuals, their families and the broader community are all impacted by work-related injury and illness. SafeWork SA reports that last year in Australia around 180 people died while doing their job. In 2017-18 107,000 people made a workers’ compensation claim for serious injury or illness.
