|This month is National Safe Work Month in Australia and while we believe safety should be a focus every month, it's clear that these designated days, weeks and months do serve to focus attention.
What is unfortunate is that there is no global co-ordination. While Australasia doesn't have a designated forklift safety space in the calendar, the UK FLTA has just completed Safetember while the US marks National Forklift Safety Day on June 14th.
Since safety is primarily a workplace issue, maybe there's no need for a global day, week or month. Perhaps the date is irrelevant, as long as the focus is there.
But one can't help but wonder if more could be achieved if industry groups worked together - and their collaboration was sharpened by a focus on a particular day.
