The National Safe Work Month 2024 theme and topics have been revealed.

Safe Work Australia has announced that the 2024 theme is ‘Safety is everyone’s business’. 

The theme is intended to describe a safe and healthy working environment as a fundamental principle and right across all industries and occupations, while reinforcing the business benefit that comes from committing to safer workplaces. 

Each week of National Safe Work Month revolves around a particular work health and safety topic. 

Incorporating consultation feedback, this year the topics are: 

Week 1: Work health and safety fundamentals 

Week 2: Psychosocial hazards

Week 3: Risk management fundamentals

Week 4: Musculoskeletal injuries

Additionally, the authority says the SafeTea sub-campaign will return this year by popular demand.

This event-based campaign encourages workplaces across the nation to gather the team and discuss WHS over a cup of tea. 

Safe Work Australia says SafeTea resources will be launched in the coming months.
