World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Worker's Memorial Day - April 28th 2017

Posted by Richard Forster on 11 April 2017

The above day is a chance to honour the memory of those who have died at work and to raise health and safety awareness. The day itself is receiving more recognition at an international level and Safe Work Australia (SWA) has taken the initiative in promoting this important day in the calendar.

The SWA website has some suggestions on how to get involved. These include:

  • organise a morning or afternoon tea to talk about health and safety
  • display promotional posters in your workplace
  • screen a seminar from the SWA Virtual Seminar Series at your workplace
  • arrange for a safety expert to speak at your workplace
  • attend a local workers' memorial event with your colleagues or family.

Further information about the day, including its history and access to resources can be found on the SWA website
