Safe Work Month 2014

Safe Work Month 2014 is almost here, time to get involved!

October will see over 35 events held throughout Queensland for workers to attend and remember that the most important reason for workplace safety is not at work at all.

This year is the year to be involved. Safety leadership, success stories that inspire, practical examples from local businesses and taking the next steps in safety will be the focus of Safe Work Month 2014.

From 1 September, you can download a range of Safe Work Month information and resources. You'll also be able to register for Safe Work Month events and activities hosted by Workplace Health and Safety Queensland. Why not hold your own safety event in your workplace during October and register it on the WHSQ website.
