2016 recorded about 176 total worker deaths throughout Australia.
Diane Smith-Gander, Chair of Safe Work Australia, has urged everyone at the start of this new year to take some time out and ensure that safety remains a top priority in their workplace for 2017.
Safe Work Australia data shows that vehicle collisions, being hit by moving objects and falls from a height are still the most common cause of death in the workplace.
Unfortunately, five people have already died on the job this year. The transport sector, remains one of the most dangerous industries, with three workers losing their lives in less than a week. The transport sector recorded the highest number of workplace deaths in 2016 (63).
According to the latest figures, one construction worker has also been killed at work. A total of 30 construction workers died on the job in 2016. The fifth fatality for 2017, so far, occurred in the arts & recreation services industry.
It’s a tragic start to the new year, so let’s make a new year’s resolution to take safety seriously and actually do something about it.
Be a safety hero in your workplace this year, strive for better safety outcomes.

  1. I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is odungaspelltemple@gmail.com and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
