Safe Work Month and Mental Health Week 2021

It’s Safe Work Month and Mental Health Week in October, and we’re excited to bring you a full program of events, including the Injury Prevention and Return to Work Conference, Mental Health Forum, and regional Safe Work Month Breakfast Forums.

There are also live-streamed events throughout the month, including the free Safe Work Month launch on Friday 1 October.
