Work Safety Month
To acknowledge National Work Safe Month, NCN staff dressed in yellow and black on October 23.
Throughout October, thousands of Australian workplaces joined National Safe Work Month to promote best practice work health and safety (WHS).
This year, National Safe Work Month has focused on WHS through COVID-19 but WHS doesn’t end here. WHS is not set and forget – risks can change and new risks can emerge. Australian workplaces must continue to model best practice WHS and create safe workplaces for everyone. Continuous risk management in the workplace must remain a priority as we work through COVID-19 and beyond.
During October, Australian employers and employees are reminded to actively improve health and safety in the workplace, focus on creating safe workspaces and a culture where everyone is aware of their surroundings.
To acknowledge National Work Safe Month, NCN staff dressed in yellow and black on October 23. A big thank you to all staff for your creativity and participation in the competition. Congratulations to the worthy winners! It was a great day, with an important message to remember year-round – Safety is everyone’s business.
