LETTER: Workplace safety is very important

DID you know one in 25 workers will be injured this year in Queensland?

As we mark national Safe Work Month in October, it is timely for all of us in the Bundaberg community to make sure that workplace safety is a top priority.

Workplace injuries can have a long-lasting effect, not only on the worker and the employer, but also on workmates, family and friends. We also know many accidents are the result of unsafe circumstances at work, and all of us have a responsibility to improve safety.

According to Worksafe, every year there are about 40 fatalities as a result of workplace injuries in Queensland. One fatality is too many.

The theme for this year's National Safe Work Month is "Be safe. Be healthy. Because…"

This is about encouraging people to consider why being safe and healthy at work is important.

There is nothing more important than making sure everyone gets home safely at the end of each work day.
