October is National Safe Work Month – a time for workplaces to consider how they can build a safe and healthy workplace for all Australians.
This year, Safe Work Australia’s theme for Safe Work Month is ‘Be a Safety Champion’. This is meant to encourage employers and workers from all occupations and industries to become a champion for work health and safety.
Everyone can support a safety culture at their workplace and promote best practice work health and safety initiatives.
SafeWork Australia’s website has a great list of what’s on in your state or territory.
BeUpstanding is a featured resource being promoted for National Safe Work Month!
SafeWork Australia has been a long- time supporter of BeUpstanding and is one of five partners in our recent NHMRC parternship grant. This grant has given us funding for a national implementation trial of the BeUpstanding Champion Toolkit. As part of the implementation trial we are able to offer champions free coaching by our expert team and customised data feedback reports.
It really is a great time to Be Upstanding!
