After another successful Safe Work Week it is clear that work health and safety is very important to Queensland businesses and workers.
Approximately 1500 people attended Safe Work Week events held throughout the state, with fifty-three organisations holding more that 300 of their own events.
The Work Health and Safety Symposium officially launched Safe Work Week 2012 celebrations on Tuesday 2 October 2012, at the Traders Hotel, Brisbane.
Industry leaders and health and safety professionals talked about the big issues in work health and safety and attendees heard from high profile business speakers, safety experts and individual organisations about innovative safety strategies, the challenges of implementing them, and the lessons learned.
Thank you to our Gold and Silver sponsors for supporting Safe Work Week 2012 and contributing to the success of the WHS Symposium.
Workplace Health and Safety Queensland co-hosted nine leadership breakfasts throughout October with industry associations, networks and prominent businesses.
Attended by more than 1100 people, the breakfasts included presentations from industry leaders and innovative case studies that demonstrated leadership and practical solutions to work health and safety problems.
Thank you to our co-host and supporting organisations for supporting Safe Work Week 2012 through helping to promote and deliver these very popular events.
We received a constant stream of photo submissions for the Safe Work Week photo gallery, depicting Queenslanders' most important reasons for staying healthy and safe at work.
Organisations throughout Queensland again held their own Safe Work Week events and activities, including presentations, workshops, training sessions, staff breakfasts or lunches, competitions and family and community days.
