What is WorkSafe Tasmania Month?

WorkSafe Month in October is a time for employers and workers to focus on improving work health, safety, wellbeing and return to work; and reducing work-related injury, illness and death.

Every October, workers and employers are encouraged to take part in the many free events and activities provided virtually and in-person, to advance their skills and knowledge.

This year’s theme is ‘Safe Bodies, Safe Minds: Working together to ensure workers return home safe and well every day’.

WorkSafe Tasmania Month is an initiative funded by the WorkCover Tasmania Board and delivered by WorkSafe Tasmania.
