Almost 25 per cent of all workplace fatalities occur at this time.

No deadline is worth someone’s life, so we are asking everyone to think about safety. The safest workplace is the one where employers and workers stop and take the time to think about the work they will be doing, and plan to do it as safely as possible.

Don’t become a Christmas statistic. For the sake of your family and friends, make workplace safety your number one priority.
