Health and safety at work

International Workers' Memorial Day is April 28

It's the day that we remember and mourn for the dead and vow to protect the living. We encourage everyone to honour those who have lost their lives at work by taking part in 1 minute of silence at 11:00AM on the day.

In an absolutely amazing win, 4 NSW HSRs have had their right to choose a HSR training provider upheld. See the detail on our HSR training page. Click here. 

Knowing what to do when you are injured at work can be confusing -- so here is our advice - and in Mandarin. 

100% Preventable but 100% Irreversible:  Did you know that nearly one in five workers will suffer hearing loss over the course of their working life -- join the AMWU campaign to lower the noise levels in our workplaces. 



Working on hot days or in hot environments see AMWU poster and here for  more detailed advice. Note:  these are guides to good temperatures when performing work - the temperatures can be adjusted for people who are acclimatized to working in heat. 

If you wish to register your exposure to asbestos - at home or at work - you can register with the Asbestos Safety and Eradication Agency

If you are an AMWU HSR sign up to our FaceBook page -- AMWU Health and Safety Reps.
