National Safe Work Month in October is a time to commit to a safe and healthy workplace.

Shane Cridland, WH&S Committee Chair supports Safe Work Australia’s think safe. work safe. be safe. campaign.

“At Easy Street, we believe that our people are our most valued asset. Their health and safety is our top priority,” Shane Cridland, WH&S Committee Chair said.

“National Safe Work Month in October is an important event each year for Easy Street. It is a great mechanism for raising awareness about important work health and safety issues and helps us highlight, understand and investigate potential WHS issues in our own workplace.”

“I encourage other businesses to join National Safe Work Month and raise awareness of work health and safety in their workplaces.”

During the last couple of years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workplaces have been presented with complex and dynamic challenges and have had to change the way they conduct their business and, in turn, manage work health and safety.

This year’s National Safe Work Month campaign highlights a range of work health and safety topics, including COVID-19, occupational lung disease, sexual harassment, mental health, and working in extreme weather.

National Safe Work Month also serves as a reminder for workplaces to review their work health and safety policies and processes.

The think safe. work safe. be safe. campaign is led by Safe Work Australia and is supported by Safe Work Australia Members and other stakeholders, including Easy Street.
