This October SafeWork NSW is inviting workplaces to take part in a SafeTea morning tea as a part of SafeWork month to discuss risks around your workplace and together look at safer ways of working.
This year’s theme is ‘Know Safety, Work Safely’, and a time for a workforce to commit to building a safe workplace where those who attend work are not at risk of physical dangers and psychological harm.
SafeWork’s SafeTea makes sure everyone in the workplace or on a site gets involved in work health and safety discussions by informally grabbing a cuppa and having a chat.
No matter where you work, whether it be a construction site, a farm or an office space, it is a good chance to raise practices which affect mental health, including how to manage workloads, exposure to trauma or remote work.
For all workplaces, a safe environment extends to not only workers but family members, visitors, customers in and around the business and this is an opportunity to explore how the public interacts with your workplace’s risks including vehicles.
SafeWork NSW has a range of SafeTea resources to download, including instructional posters to help drive conversations. Read more about Safe Work Month and how to plan your SafeTea event at: www.safework.nsw.gov.au/advice-and-resources/campaigns/Safe-Work-Month.
