Safe Work Australia Week

Graham Marshall - Sunday, October 21, 2012

Safe Work Australia Week commences today (21st October) and runs through to the 27th October, with the theme ‘Safety begins with ‘S’ but starts with ‘You”.

Safety is an ongoing topic in any workplace but this week specifically encourages staff on all levels to contribute to their workplace health and safety.  It is up to all of us to facilitate continuous improvement and ensure a safe working environment for everyone.

Nominations are also being called for the Safety Ambassador of the Year Award to highlight and reward the efforts of individuals who improve their workplace safety. The results will be announced at the end of the month on the Safe Work Australia website.

Some suggestions for information sessions to be run in your workplace during Safe Work Australia Week could include:

+   Manual handling;
 
+  Healthy eating and snacking;
 
+  Sunsmart techniques -  slip, slop, slap and wrap;
 
+  Fatigue management;
 
+  Hydration and heat management in summer;
 

There is still time to invite and encourage your staff to participate in Safe Work Australia Week.

Workplace activities may include:

+  Lunchtime walking groups;
 
+  Conducting hazard checks during walk-around;
 
+  Organise first aid training;
 
+  General housekeeping of work stations; and
 
For more suggested activities and other information, visit the Safe Work Australia website.
