Let's Keep Work Safe & Sound: World Day for Health and Safety at Work

Every year on April 28th, the world comes together to recognise the International Labour Organisation's World Day for Safety and Health at Work. Supported by our partners at Safe Work Australia, this day is a vital reminder of the significance of maintaining safe and healthy work environments for everyone involved. At Eaton Services Group, we stand behind this great initiative that is dedicated to upholding our commitment as a trusted commercial cleaning leader in our community.

Climate Change: A Growing Concern

This year, the theme resonates deeply with our team —climate change and its impact on workplace safety and health. Climate change is no longer a distant concern; it's an everyday reality. With unpredictable weather patterns, increased pollution levels, intense storms, and heightened chemical exposure, the challenges we face are evolving rapidly.

The statistics speak volumes. In 2022, a staggering 195 workers in Australia tragically lost their lives while on the job. This fact underscores the urgent need for enhanced workplace safety measures and vigilance.

Prioritising Safety in Challenging Times

Operating on the Eastern Seaboard, we've witnessed the effects of extreme weather events firsthand. One of our top priorities is ensuring our team stays safe when things get rough. Whether it's setting up heat stress plans, handing out sunscreen, or keeping chemicals in check, we're all about protecting our people.

Championing Sustainability

Recognising that we cannot combat climate change in isolation, our team is fully committed to sustainability. We're continually finding ways to reduce energy consumption, collaborating with eco-conscious suppliers, and actively working to minimise our carbon footprint. We believe that every action, no matter how small, contributes to a greener future.

Empowering Our Team

But it's not just about what we do; it's also about what we know. We're big on keeping our team focused on the best ways to stay safe and keep the planet happy. Whether providing the right personal protective gear or discussing climate change risks, we want our team to feel empowered to make smarter choices.

Our Goals for 2024

In line with our commitment to safety, health, and the environment, we've set a couple of attainable goals to guide our efforts in 2024:

  • Reduce energy consumption.

  • Promote eco-friendly practices.

  • Collaborate with like-minded suppliers.

  • Equip our team with appropriate gear and training.

  • Foster ongoing conversations about safety and sustainability.

Join Us in Making a Difference

On this World Day for Health and Safety at Work, let's unite in our efforts to create workplaces that are safe, healthy, and resilient. Together, we can pave the way for a brighter, safer future for everyone.

Join the conversation and make a difference for a safer, healthier world.
