SafeWork NSW has launched a new campaign to ensure workers and employers are safe while doing their jobs.

The $.32 million campaign, “Safety starts with you” has been developed to improve workplace safety and reduce injuries and illnesses among NSW workers.

SafeWork NSW Group Director, Regional Operations and Sector Initiatives, Tony Williams said the new campaign aims to encourage workers and businesses to tackle safety in the workplace.

“No matter your occupation, industry or background, safety is everyone’s responsibility,” said Mr. Williams.

“When you are injured at work, it doesn’t just affect you, it affects your family, friends and can also have an impact on your community.

“Through the campaign, we want workers to think about what might happen if they’re injured at work and look at changing their behaviour.”

The campaign features TV, print and radio ads focusing on high-risk industries and work activities.

The campaign is part of SafeWork NSW’s Work Health and Safety Roadmap for NSW 2022
