October is national Safe Work Month and a time to refocus on improving work health and safety in your workplace.

This year we are focusing on falls from heights and exposure to silica dust - two areas that have some of the highest risks for business and workers in NSW. Check out the links below to find out what you need to know, what you can do and where to get help in these areas. Because no matter what you do, safety starts with you.

Safety is serious but it doesn't have to be complicated.
