Australian National Safe Work Month

8 October 2019

Story from NRSPP.

October is National Safe Work Month in Australia, which is a national campaign to raise awareness about WHS in the Australian working community.

At the forefront of worker fatalities is vehicle collisions accounting for 39% of worker fatalities (2003 to 2016). For many businesses the risk management approach to the vehicle as a workplace is entirely different, even non-existent, to workers on a factory floor, building site, office, etc...

Organisations within the National Road Safety Partnership Programme (NRSPP) all provide the same common narrative, the vehicle is a key risk and often was initially overlooked.

However, once identified the organisations developed a long term plan with their workers driving their road safety improvements which recognising it as sound investment improving culture, productivity, environmental emissions and efficiency.
