World Day for Safety & Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day

Today we reflect on how to prevent work-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses.

Wednesday 28 April was World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day. Today we reflect on how to prevent work-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses. It is also a day to remember those that have died from a work-related injury or illness.

While the number of work-related fatalities in Australia has been steadily decreasing over the last decade, any workplace death is tragic and unacceptable. The latest finalised data shows that in 2019, 183 workers were fatally injured at work.

At Workwear Group, we maintain a relentless focus on your health, safety & well-being. We want every team member to go home the same way they came to work.

  • We know our fatal risks and the controls we have in place to reduce the risk, but frequently ask if there is more that we can;
  • We are constantly reinforcing the importance of our implemented controls to reduce our fatal risks, we cannot over-state these;
  • We understand what can cause physical and mental harm to our team members, and we strive to do better;
  • We take every opportunity to learn from our incidents and reports ~ this guides our thinking about what more we need to do;
  • We call on every team member to “tell us” ~ what more can we do to keep you safe & healthy.
During COVID pandemic, the risk was unknown and invisible. We navigated through unchartered territory and many of the controls were procedural ~ with the trust, assistance and patience of our team members we got through it….but we are still in it.

Together we can make a difference to our working lives ~ by having these conversations every month we are constantly reinforcing the importance of staying safe & healthy. Individually we can make a difference, if you see something, say something.
