World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day - Tuesday 28th April 2015

Posted on 28 April 2015

World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day Tuesday 28th April 2015

The idea of a Workers' Memorial Day first began in Canada in 1984 and has since spread to many more countries, including Australia.

On the above date you can put the focus on preventing incidents and taking time to remember those that have lost their lives due to workplace diseases and injuries. Help to raise awareness of this initiative and OHS in general, by:

  • Holding a minute silence and focus on an OHS issue in your workplace;
  • Organising a morning tea or BBQ  lunch and reflecting on OHS improvements;
  • Hosting a Health and Safety Committee meeting and include the Memorial Day as an agenda item, discussing a new health and safety campaign or program; and
  • Asking a WorkSafe inspector or OHS Consultant to visit and provide an update on new initiatives for continual improvement.
