Do your employees prioritise safety above all else, everywhere everyday? Thought

National Safe Work Australia Week, coming up next month on 21-27 October, is a
really useful event for reminding your employees about the importance of safety.

This year, Safe Work Australia's theme is "Safety begins with S but starts with

some useful resources such as posters and ideas for promoting Safety Week in
your workplace. Visit the Safe Work Australia Week

who will clearly explain the correct techniques, and also provide exercises and
tips and how to support and strengthen your body to prevent injury.
We also offer three popular booklets,
