This October is National Safe Work Month: a time where the government asks Australians to commit to building safe and healthy workplaces. To mark this, SafeWork NSW is urging businesses to host a SafeTea event. 

The event is described as a chance to grab a cuppa, gather teams in person or online, and start a conversation about health and safety at work.

 “The way we work has changed the past couple of years and our safety and wellbeing has never been more important,” says Head of SafeWork NSW Natasha Mann. 

“Every workplace has risks. As part of National Safe Work Month, in October all businesses from accounting firms to construction are encouraged to host a SafeTea event at their workplace.”

This year’s theme is ‘Know safety, Work safely’. 

“Last year in Australia 163 people died while doing their job. No job should be unsafe, and no death or injury is acceptable,” says Mann. 

“This October is the perfect time to look at your workplace, understand the risks and make simple changes to improve safety because a safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone.”

SafeWork NSW has a range of SafeTea resources to download on the SafeWork NSW website, including instructional posters to help drive conversations.
