MAKE SAFETY A PRIORITY DURING SAFE WORK MONTH

 

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser encourages local businesses to show their commitment to safe and healthy workplaces as part of national Safe Work Month.

“Safe Work Month is an opportunity for businesses and workers to focus on improving work health and safety in their workplace,” Mr Fraser said.

“Whether you are an employer or a worker, and regardless of your industry, occupation or background, workplace safety is everyone’s responsibility.

“I encourage Coffs Coast business leaders and workers to get behind Safe Work Month and demonstrate their commitment to work health and safety.

Mr Fraser said the SafeWork NSW website had ideas and tips to help get workplaces thinking about safety during Safe Work Month.

“SafeWork’s free Safe Work Month Toolkit has over 20 ideas and helpful tips to get businesses looking at and talking about safety and can be downloaded from the website,” Mr Fraser said.

“There are also a range of events and activities planned across the State or, alternatively, workplaces can organise their own.

“SafeWork’s social media accounts also feature great ideas on simple safety and the latest safety innovations.”

“Our workplaces should be the safest, healthiest, and most productive so I urge businesses throughout the Coffs Harbour electorate to show their commitment to building safe and healthy workplaces.”
