What is WorkSafe Month?

WorkSafe Month is a time for employers and workers to focus on improving work health, safety, wellbeing and return to work; and reducing work-related injury, illness and death.

During October, workers and employers are encouraged to take part in the many free events hosted by WorkSafe Tasmania throughout the state.

WorkSafe Month supports Safe Work Australia’s National Safe Work Month (external link). It is an initiative of WorkSafe Tasmania and the WorkCover Tasmania Board, supporting our joint Strategic Plan 2018-2023; specifically our strategies around:

  • Targeted harm reduction: Reducing harm in Tasmanian workplaces
  • Building culture and capability: Responding to current and emerging WHS issues.
