National Safe Work Month
October is National Safe Work Month and here at SHAPE, we see it as an opportunity to highlight our commitment to improving the health and safety of not only SHAPE employees but all worksites across Australia. According to Safe Work Australia’s preliminary data, around 180 people died while doing their job last year, while 107,000 people made a workers’ compensation claim for serious injury or illness in 2017-18.
National Safe Work Month is a reminder that there are still far too many safety incidents happening at work – including construction sites – around the country.
SHAPE is passionate about making our industry safer and reducing the number of incidents on worksites. That’s why we’ve made our SMS app publicly available for free download from the Google Play store for Android phones and from the SHAPE website for all other devices. We want to help improve the culture of safety in our industry by making safety information instantly available at the fingertips of contractors anytime, anywhere.
