WorkSafe Month

As October fast approaches, so does WorkSafe Month.

The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in everyone adapting to a new “normal” and WorkSafe Month is no different.  WorkSafe Tasmaniawill still be delivering an exciting program full of sessions covering work health and safety, wellbeing, injury management and return to work, but for the first time ever, the entire month will be virtual.

This year’s theme, ‘Safe Bodies, Safe Minds’, highlights the importance of our physical and mental health and wellbeing at work and shows us what we can do to ensure our work is safer, healthier and more productive.

The Month includes a comprehensive range of online webinars hosted by WorkSafe Tasmania and online training delivered by OzHelp Tasmania (a program of Lifeline Tasmania).

Don’t miss your opportunity to hear from expert speakers, business leaders and health and safety professionals about topics including the ongoing health and safety implications of COVID-19, mental health at work, workplace wellbeing, supporting others in the workplace, and health and safety for small business.

Tasmania’s WorkSafe Month is an initiative of the WorkCover Tasmania Board and supports Safe Work Australia’s “National Safe Work Month”
