Safe Work Australia has launched the theme for this year’s National Safe Work Month: Work Health and Safety through COVID-19 and associated campaign kit.
This year’s theme acknowledges and reflects the impacts of COVID-19 on work health and safety. The theme recognises that every Australian workplace has been affected by the global pandemic and that workplaces have had to adapt their practices and procedures to reduce the WHS risks associated with COVID-19. This year’s campaign kit resources are digitally focused and include web graphics, social media tiles and document templates which can be customised to appeal to a broad range of organisations and industries. Over the coming months, additional resources will be made available on the National Safe Work Month website, including animations and information sheets on COVID-19 work health and safety.
