Safe Work Australia suggests organisations review their risk assessment processes this week, starting with the identification and assessment of hazards. Useful articles to help you get started:
Week two of Safe Work Month is about mental health. To in identifying the psychosocial hazards at your workplace, speak with supervisors, managers and workers. You can also organise an activity to acknowledge World Mental Health Day on 10 October.
The theme for this week is about supporting all workers, including those vulnerable to health and safety harm: the young, those who work alone, culturally and linguistically diverse workers or working in a more complex contractual chain (e.g. labour hire).
What does the future hold for health and safety? Safe Work Australia encourages organisations to focus this attention on changing ways of working as well as the emergence of new forms of work.
