Safe Work Australia Week

Wednesday, 08 August, 2007

Safe Work Australia Week, a week to focus attention on workplace safety issues around Australia, will be held from 21 to 27 October this year.

Organised by the Australian Safety and Compensation Council (ASCC), the week is designed to encourage all working Australians to get involved in and concentrate on safety in their workplace.

Individuals and companies can get involved by participating in a safety event in their state or territory or by conducting a safety activity in their own workplace.

According to ASCC, incorporating safety into our everyday work practices and making it a daily consideration not only improves OHS performance, but it has a very significant effect on productivity.

ASCC has provided ideas for safety activities in the workplace, helping companies highlight to their employees the importance of safety and the role that everyone plays in making safety a priority at work.
