Safe Work Month

Each year around 17 Queenslanders die as a result of a devastating workplace incident, and over 5,000 suffer a permanent injury. Safe Work Month is an opportunity to come together and build healthy, safe and productive working environments within your workplace.

Queenslanders work hard and it’s important we all go home at the end of the day, safe. Businesses big and small are encouraged to take part in hosting a Safe Work Month event for 2020, raising awareness about the importance and impact of safe work.

Download the planning toolkit and checklist to get ready for Safe Work Month 2020 – you can check out the 2019 free event kit to help you start planning! The kit includes posters, social media tiles, digital assets and even safety themed games and music!

Due to high levels of interest, Safety Advocate availability is limited in Safe Work Month. We encourage you to make your Safety Advocate request well in advance of your event.

Communicating to your workforce, their families and the community will help build a better safety culture and future.
