Safe Work Australia recently released a range of new resources to assist organisations in preparing for national safe work month.

The resources have been published on the National Safe Work Month website, and include:


Safe Work Australia encouraged employers, small businesses, duty holders and work health and safety representatives to download the resources and distribute them within their workplaces.

Supporting the overarching national safe work month theme – Work Health and Safety through COVID-19, Safe Work Australia said each week of October will focus on a WHS topic, including mental health and using data to create better WHS policy.

Each topic has a downloadable poster and social media tiles so organisations can promote them in their workplace and to their networks.
