In 2015, 191 Australians died at work. While 96% of these deaths were men, it’s important to remember that their deaths affect the whole community – including families, co-workers and friends. During National Safe Work Month, we encourage you to consider your health and safety to make sure you return home safely to your family.
A safe and healthy workplace is a positive and productive workplace. Each year in October, National Safe Work Month reminds us about the reasons why workplace health and safety is important, and it’s a good time to stop and think about the ways in which we can all look out for each other and make sure the workplace is a healthy and safe environment. If you see something unsafe, say something.
Australian Workplace Supplies are committed to ensuring the safety of you, your colleagues and your employees. We stock a large range of first aid kits, fire extinguisher and many other products designed to keep the workplace safe.
