AFL Victoria is reminding the wider football community of the importance of workplace safety this week with WorkSafe Victoria’s Jobs at Home Day campaign.
In its sixth year, the Jobs at Home Day campaign reminds Victorians to be safe at work to ensure everyone can arrive home and continue to do all the important jobs that involve caring for partners, children, friends and family.
Victorians are encouraged to create a FREE customised Jobs at Home Day badge displaying your important job at home title to wear at the workplace on Friday December 7.
Through recognising the important roles we do at home, the campaign encourages discussions about how safe practice at work has a direct impact on the things we do outside of the workplace.
With more than 25,000 Victorian workers seriously injured in the workplace last year, AFL Victoria CEO Steven Reaper, said the campaign is a timely reminder for everyone to be mindful about workplace safety.
“Workplace safety should always be a priority, so it’s important that we keep talking about our most important reasons for being safe at work, and for me, that’s my family,” he said.
“The Jobs at Home campaign is a terrific reminder for everyone to think about the number of tasks you do with your loved ones at home and how important it is that everyone is able to come home and do them.
“Whether you’re a ‘Chief Story-Teller, ‘Dishwashing Guru’, or ‘iPad Officer’, we all have a responsibility to ensure we are safe at work and remind each other that the most important reason for workplace safety isn’t work at all.”
