October is National Safe Work Month – a time when we stand together to deepen our commitment to building a safe and healthy workplace for everyone in our industry.  Being healthy and safe means being free from physical and psychological harm.  A safe and healthy workplace benefits everyone.  

This year’s campaign theme is “Not Safe? Not Sure? Speak Up!”.  Safer Together has published 2 resource packs - one for Queensland, and one for all other states and territories - to help companies in our industry to facilitate a conversation with all their frontline workers about recognising unsafe or unhealthy situations, and reinforcing a culture that empowers and supports every individual to stop work and report.

Each Safer Together resource pack is designed to be delivered as one of these two options:

  • Option 1:  A specific stand-alone (90 minute) Stand Together for Safety event, or

  • Option 2:  As a series of three Stand Together for Safety toolbox talks (30 minutes each).  


  1. Talk with your supervisor and teams about Stand Together for Safety, using these materials,
  2. Download the materials,
  3. Read the How To Guide, and
  4. Plan your Stand Together for Safety event.
