SafeWork SA is again running its popular ‘Organise Your Own Workplace Activity’ competition as part of its National Safe Work Month events.
The National Safe Work Month 2023 theme is For everyone’s safety, work safely with a weekly focus on different health and safety areas including injuries at work, mental health and managing WHS risks.
Whether you have five employees or 500 employees, in Adelaide or in one of SA’s great regional centres you can get involved. Organise your own workplace activity and show your commitment to health and safety in your workplace.
Hosting your activity
There are a range of activities you can organise in your workplace to raise awareness about work health and safety.
Being healthy and safe means not only being free from physical harm but also psychological harm – this means a workplace free from bullying. A safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone.
In addition to that, an HSR activity is a fabulous way of fostering teamwork and connection.
Your work place activity or event can be quite fun and informal. In previous years workplaces have organised a range of activities such as:
- a safety quiz
- a themed morning tea
- a hazard identification competition
- a clean up day that focusses on removing potential hazards
- mini Olympics that gets both your brains and muscles active
- arranging a health check for staff
- a talk with a focus on an aspect of work health and safety that impacts your business
- produced a safety video or training course.
Register your activity with us, and your workplace can go into the running to win one of our gold, silver or bronze awards worth up to $500. We have prizes for both large businesses and the very small so everyone is in the running no matter what your budget.
Don’t forget to promote your event on social media and let everyone know you take safety seriously – use #safeworkmonth and #KnowSafety #WorkSafely on your posts.
