Today is World Day for Safety and Health at Work – How will you Raise Awareness?

28 April 2017 marks the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. This year, the annual international campaign hosted by the International Labour Organisation (ILO), promotes the prevention of accidents and incidents through optimising the collection and use of occupational safety and health data.
Committed to ensuring work health and safety compliance and driving a safety-focused culture, we’re continuously looking to work with our partners in various industries to reduce workplace accidents and support customers in achieving a positive cultural change. There are many resources out there which highlight the importance of optimising the collection and use of occupational safety and health data, and the urgent need for vastly improved national occupational health and safety (OHS) data.
Among the many resources available to ensure compliance and health and safety measures are maintained in the workplace, the Department of Petroleum and Mines has provided some useful information and materials to help you stay on track with the latest health and safety news which you can find here. Included is an OHS Body of Knowledge page, which is a collective knowledge resource developed to provide a sound basis for OHS professionals to understand the causation and control of work-related fatalities, injury, disease and ill-health. This knowledge can be described in terms of key concepts and the application of these to facilitate a safe and healthy workplace.
