Workplace Fatalities

Tragically, another worker has lost his life today in a coal mine in QLD. Last year over 150 workers died at work. There are people doing dangerous work all over Australia to keep the country running. Whilst Australians are good risk takers, there are still too many people not making it home from work.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-06-27/central-queensland-coal-mine-death/11251110

The fatality rate is improving though (the below image is from Safework Australia). This is through a lot of regulation, education and workplace effort. I hope we can all continue these improvements and work towards zero workplace fatalities.

Machinery operators and drivers make up the majority of the statistics.

Please take care.
