If you’re a food delivery business, you need to read this!

Recently, Safe Work Australia launched their Deliver yourself home safely campaign, which provides food delivery workers with practical information and key contact details to help influence positive work health and safety attitudes and behaviours.

According to Safe Work Australia, 10 food delivery workers have died since 2019.

The campaign shares materials on work health and safety risks and hazards, rights and duties, what food delivery workers can do to keep safe, dealing with abuse and extreme weather conditions, work health and safety consultation, and workers’ compensation.

Safe Work Australia’s Chief Executive Officer Michelle Baxter said all workers, regardless of the work they do or how they’re engaged, have a right to a healthy and safe working environment.

“This includes food delivery workers who encounter a range of hazards in their jobs that pose risks to both physical and psychological safety.

“It’s important food delivery workers understand what they can do to be safe at work, as well as who they can talk to about work health and safety, so they can get home safely.

“They are, after all, the most valuable package,” Ms Baxter said.

The materials are available in English, Mandarin, Punjabi, Nepali, Vietnamese, Hindi, and Urdu.
