Safe Work Month

2020 Safe Work Month events

A full program of virtual events, tools and resources focusing on work health and safety and return to work is planned this October.

Due to the difficult circumstances many businesses are facing in light of COVID-19, all Safe Work Month and Mental Health Week digital events are FREE to attend this year.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to hear from expert speakers about hot topics including the ongoing health and safety implications of COVID-19, mental health at work, workplace wellbeing, safety culture and leadership, and health and safety for small businesses.

You’ll come away from every event with clear take-away actions to help you immediately start improving work health and safety and return to work outcomes in your workplace.
