'The most important reason for making your workplace safe, is not at work at all.'
The physical, emotional and financial impact of a work-related injury or illness can be devastating for a worker. Employers lose, too: experience, productivity, opportunities and income are all affected.
But they are not the only people who suffer. Every injured worker has friends, family and loved ones who may be directly or indirectly affected.
For many people, the best times in life are not at work, which is why it's so important to leave work safely and get home.
