Overtime and going home late is now a work health and safety issue

What is Safe Work Australia Month?

October is Safe Work Australia Month! This is a time to raise awareness of work health and safety to reduce workplace death, injury and disease.

This year’s theme is Work safe. Home safe, to remind us that the most important reason to stay safe is not work! We all want to go home safe after work to our family and loved ones.
