Today (October 1 2020) is the start of National Safe Work Month— and while safety is always important this October provides a great opportunity to continue to talk about and promote safe and healthy worksites.
“National Safe Work Month presents an important opportunity to engage with our members and the industry more broadly on safety, and for workplaces to encourage further discussions about safety on site,” said HIA Managing Director, Graham Wolfe.
“For Safe Work Month this year HIA’s theme is— Site Safety Matters and we invite everyone to promote best practice work health and safety initiatives at their workplace.”
During Safe Work Month, HIA will launch a range videos and resources on themes including safety basics, apprentices matter, mental health safety and how HIA can help businesses meet their safety obligations and maintain safe workplaces.
“To tune in to our program during National Safe Work Month visit our website and keep an eye out on our social media channels. Most importantly we hope you will help to promote safety in your own workplace.
You can follow HIA’s Site Safety Matters initiative on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms using the hashtag ‘#HIAsafetymatters and give a shout out for safety at your workplace.
“This October (2020) let’s all talk proactively about safety in the workplace and ensure Site Safety Matters,” concluded Mr Wolfe.
