October may be on its way out, but there’s still time to ensure your business is doing its part to raise awareness of National Safe Work Australia Month and take part in any of the several activities going on around the country. Last years’ inaugural program was such a success, Safe Work Australia felt it would have to repeat the month-long awareness campaign, and so far it has gone swimmingly. The theme for 2013 has been “Safety is a frame of mind. Get the picture”, which was chosen to reflect the need for better safety to come from within organisations themselves. Last year’s event was a major hit, with a record 699 people registering as Safety Ambassadors. This year, the group hopes to encourage 800 people to sign up, which would likely have a huge impact on safety improvements in Australia’s workplaces. When the program got off the ground, Safe Work Australia Chair Ann Sherry spoke on how it important it is for companies to strive to win the 2013 Safety Ambassador of Year Award. “Building on the success of last year’s Safe Work Australia Week this year’s celebrations have been extended to a month in October,” Ms Sherry said. “Every workplace in Australia should focus on improving health and safety during October to reduce the incidence of death, injury and disease. “I encourage everyone to get involved in promoting safety at work during safety month. A great way is to register as a Safety Ambassador in your workplace.” One of the best ways to ensure employee safety in an industrial setting is to invest in the right infrastructure that not only improves productivity and eliminates or reduces downtime, but keeps workers safe through fall prevention strategies.
