October - a time for solemn reflection and an opportunity to learn more about health and safety

Posted on 1 October 2015

The month of October is traditionally a busy one in the health and safety calendar.

It will provide an opportunity to reflect. On Thursday 15th of October 2015, a memorial service will be held to mark the 45th anniversary of the West Gate Bridge collapse, Australia's worst industrial accident that claimed 35 lives.

Nationally, October is safety month. This year's theme is "Be safe, be healthy". This initiative is coordinated by Safe Work Australia.

In Victoria, WorkSafe Victoria are hosting a number of events as part of a Health and Safety Week initiative and the question being posed is "Are you ready to Talk Safe, Think Safe, Work Safe?" The events actually run from 19th to 28th October across Victoria.

Further details may be obtained at http://worksafeweek.worksafe.vic.gov.au/

If you are thinking of holding an event and are looking for external help then please contact HAZCON for a chat on how we may assist.
