Wednesday, is World Day for Health and Safety at Work. This day provides us with an opportunity to remember those who have tragically died due to a workplace injury.

In Australia, over 500,000 people are injured due to workplace accidents every year and close to 200 people are fatally injured at work. On a global scale, the numbers are in the millions.

These statistics mean that thousands of Australians are affected by workplace accidents every day. We understand that a workplace accident not only affects the injured person, but also has a big impact on their family and friends. This means that families have to watch their loved ones suffer, miss out on work, lose wages, skip family events, and unfortunately in the most severe cases, never see their loved ones return home.

Workplace accidents can unfortunately happen to anyone at any time. We have seen families experience financial hardship due to the loss of income, and suffer emotionally seeing their loved ones hurt, as well as have their day to day routine turned upside down.
