SAFE WORK MONTH

Think safe. Work safe. Be safe.

At Sentis, safety is more than a KPI. Safety is a state of being. Where we are healthy, well and engaged, and fit and ready for work. When we invest in our safety by looking after our wellbeing, becoming more conscious of our thoughts and actions, and taking responsibility for the influence we have on the culture around us, we learn the true value of safety. It's about quality of life. The ability to have, be and do what matters to you; and be around long enough to enjoy it.

This National Safe Work Month we're encouraged to think safe, work safe and be safe. To help you plan and implement your Safe Work Month campaign, we've put together a series of resources below.  For more information on Safe Work Month, visit  Safe Work Australia .

 Think safe.   

Sometimes people say that safety takes too long, costs too much or gets in the way of getting the job done. But what if we challenged the way we think about safety? What if we saw safety more like a currency? A way to invest in the things that are most important to us...

Consider this...
Safety looks a little different for all of us. For some, it's working in the field doing high-risk tasks; for others it's sedentary roles with high levels of mental stress. Regardless of your context, safety matters to all of us. Our attitudes, behaviours and decisions influence those around us. Being safe, well and engaged benefits us all.

Work safe.

Our likelihood of going home safe rests largely on our attitudes for taking risks, our willingness to identify risks and our choice to manage risks when they're identified.

Consider this...
While we all want to go home safe, it's easy to become complacent over time. When we've performed a task hundreds, or even thousands of times and haven't had an incident, we can start to believe that it won't happen to us. We might start to feel that risk assessments or wearing certain PPE is unnecessary, because after all, we've never been hurt doing this task. That's because our brains predict the future based on past experience. But, how confident are you that nothing will ever change?

Be safe.

We all have a role to play when it comes to our workplace safety culture. 'Be safe' is about the commitment we make to ourselves and our team to work together safely—within the boundaries of our skills and abilities—to achieve a shared goal of getting home to the people and things we care about most.

Consider this...
Many workplaces will have an unwritten 'code' that drives behaviour between teammates—some of which will be helpful to the goal of safe work and others not so much. Genuine safe teams look out for one another. When we're all part of the solution, learn together when errors are made and hold each other to account, we're more likely to get home safe each day. Are you part of a team that covers for each other, even when a mistake is made? Or a team that seeks to understand why a mistake was made, shares the learning and owns their portion of responsibility?
