THE IMPACT OF WORK SAFETY
Workplace safety is a topic that we likely all feel like we have a reasonable understanding of as incidents caused by lack of attention, poor forethought, and misfortune. But it is difficult to fully understand how widespread and common incidents are in the workplace without seeing work safety statistics. You’ll hear a story here or there of something going wrong on a site and it’ll weigh on your mind but sometimes it takes an accident happening to someone you know or yourself to start really taking workplace safety seriously. That’s why we want to help spread information on the impact and frequency of workplace incidents and work safety statistics in Australia, as a background to support the purpose of our safety speakers.
The information being shown is not our own, while we have stories and experiences to share, we aren’t work safety professionals or researchers, The information has been taken from research and reports done by Safe Work Australia on workplace safety incidents and work safety claims.
