October is National Safe Work Month and the theme for this year is think safe. work safe. be safe.
Think safe—is the first step to thinking about work health and safety. Workplace safety includes both the physical (asbestos, trip, slip and fall, chemicals, faulty equipment) and emotional (bullying, respect and relationship) safety of workers.
Work safe—is about implementing work health and safety measures to manage risks including the practical steps you can take to reduce risk and avoid workplace incidents.
Be safe—considers the ongoing process of managing and monitoring work health and safety risks – it is not a one off.
