World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2022

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers' Memorial Day is celebrated every year on 28 April. This day will provide an opportunity to raise awareness of workplace health and safety. It is also a day to remember those who have been killed at work.

Latest Safe Work Australia figures show a total of 194 workers were killed at work in 2020.

“Any workplace fatality is tragic and unacceptable,” Safe Work Australia said.

“By raising awareness of the importance of health and safety in the workplace, Australian workplaces can implement an effective and preventative approach to work health and safety and ultimately save lives.

“We encourage everyone to recognise the importance of health and safety in the workplace by promoting World Day and Workers' Memorial Day on 28 April 2022.”

This year's theme is ‘Act together to build a positive safety and health culture’
