2018 World Day for Safety and Health at Work
Saturday, 28th April is World Day for Safety and Health at Work day.
Being part of a safe workplace is so important and the theme for this year is Generation Safe and Healthy and highlights the importance of improving safety and health for young workers and our generations to come.
Young workers (aged from 15-24 years) make up a substantial proportion of the workforce. They can bring energy, new ideas and a fresh perspective. However, young workers are also at risk of workplace injury due to their lack of experience and maturity, and they may be less aware of WHS risks and responsibilities.
Employers, supervisors, managers and other leaders of young workers have the greatest influence on their attitude to having a safe work environment. Let’s work together to ensure that we all have a safe and health place to work.
