Like you, we’re committed to safe and healthy workplaces for everyone.

The benefits of a safe and healthy workplace ensures that all workers can be free from physical and psychological harm. October is National Safe Work Month and Safe Work Australia’s theme for 2021 is think safe. work safe. be safe. 

We think that the National Safe Work Month 2021 theme has the appropriate emphasis and ring to it to keep safety front of mind when conducting activities in the workplace.

Knowing that good work health and safety practices also keeps us compliant is an added benefit. 

We all need reminders that health and safety procedures need to be adhered to. It’s natural to cut corners to save time, yet if it puts us or our colleagues in potential danger, that’s not ok. Just-get-it-done attitudes really don’t work on a Construction site.

Training has a big part to play in upholding workplace health and safety.
