2019 Safe Work Month events

Throughout October, Queenslanders all across the state attended a range of Safe Work Month events. We hosted a total of 13 events helping to raise awareness of the importance of work health and safety and return to work.

Safe Work Month events focus on designing healthy and safe work, fostering a culture of health and safety and the latest research and innovations in safety and return to work. Delegates are provided with practical tools and resources to improve work safety, rehabilitation and return to work.
