Today marks the beginning of national Safe Work Month – a timely reminder that no matter what you do, safety starts with you. There are plenty of ways to get involved. Start a safety conversation in your workplace today by using the free tools now available on our Safe Work Month web page.
We want to ensure all workers come home safely, however this month we’re shining a light on two distinct harm areas – falls from heights and exposure to silica dust.
Falls from heights is the leading cause of workplace fatalities, particularly on construction sites and in the manufacturing and transport sectors.
If you work with manufactured stone, bricks, concrete or rock; it’s also possible that without the right controls you could be at risk of being exposed to silica dust.
