On 28 April every year, countries around the world commemorate workers who have lost their lives from a workplace incident or occupational disease through the World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day. This year, organisations are highlighting the importance of improved safety and health for young workers, who are often less aware of WHS risks and responsibilities. With 40 occupational deaths in Australia as of 20 April in 2018, 28 April serves as a reminder of the inherent risks that come with many jobs and the importance of continued commitment to workplace health and safety.
