Be a safety champion

October is National Safe Work Month – a time to remind us all about the importance of health and safety in the workplace.

This year’s theme is 'be a safety champion', which highlights that safety is everyone’s job – both employers and workers from any occupation or industry can be a champion for occupational health and safety (OHS). 

During October, WorkSafe Victoria is holding a local Health & Safety Month, featuring a calendar of events to educate people about the importance of OHS and how to manage OHS risks in the workplace.

Strive to be a safety champion at work all year round with our handy OHS Practice Plus resources. You can find further information from WorkSafe Victoria on how to manage OHS in health care.
