National Safe Work Month promotes WHS through COVID-19

Safe Work Australia has launched the theme and an associated campaign kit for National Safe Work Month: Work Health and Safety through COVID-19. The theme acknowledges and reflects the impact of COVID-19 on work health and safety, as workplaces adapted their practices and procedures to reduce the risks associated with COVID-19.

The campaign kit resources are digitally focused and include web graphics, social media tiles and customisable document templates, to appeal to a range of organisations and industries. Additional resources, including animations and information sheets on COVID-19 work health and safety, will also be made available on the National Safe Work Month website.

Safe Work Australia has urged workplaces to start planning their work health and safety activities for October by joining National Safe Work Month. To participate, visit the National Safe Work Month website and download a range of resources from the campaign kit. The resources can be customised and shared with work teams, supervisors and/or health and safety representatives. Workplaces can also follow Safe Work Australia on social media, to keep up to date on new campaign materials, and use the hashtags #safeworkmonth and #safetytogether when promoting National Safe Work Month on social media.
