Sydney event commemorates workers killed on the job

SafeWork NSW has attended the 2024 International Day of Mourning event hosted by Unions NSW, to honour those affected by workplace incidents.

The event held in Sydney served as a commemoration for workers who have lost their lives, sustained injuries, or endured illnesses as a result of incidents occurring in the workplace.

Statistics from Safe Work Australia indicate that in 2023, a total of 175 Australian workers died on the job.

The International Day of Mourning serves as a significant opportunity to draw attention to the avoidable causes of work-related incidents and fatalities.
