October is “National Safe Work Month”. Sadly, too many workers die each year as a result of traumatic workplace incidents and many more suffer permanent injury. These deaths and injuries carry with them a devastating and personal impact on workers and their families.
Safe Work Month provides an opportunity for us to reflect on practical ways to improve workplace health and safety within our organisation.
In 2017, Shamrock Civil played our part to support the month with a number of initiatives including:
- Message a day – “Safety is a cheap and effective insurance policy”
- Health and safety trivia competition
- Spot the hazard competition
- Healthy morning/afternoon tea – focus on fruit not fast food
