WorkSafe's Everyone. Every Workplace installation opened today at Southern Cross Station and aims to spark conversations in workplaces and the community about what it means to be safe and healthy at work.
As they make their way around the installation, people will be able to observe their own reactions to the powerful audio stories of Victorians who have been injured at work. These stories first aired as part of WorkSafe's Everyone, Every Workplace advertising campaign earlier this year.
WorkSafe Chief Executive Clare Amies said the thought provoking installation was designed to reinforce the fact that workplace health and safety was everyone’s business.
"By listening to these stories and gauging their own responses, we hope that visitors to the installation will be moved to start the conversation in their own workplace about what is needed to keep themselves and others safe from injury," Ms Amies said.
"The stories are confronting because workplace injuries, be they physical or mental, are traumatic and can impact the lives of many people for a long time after they occur."
The installation coincides with WorkSafe Health and Safety Month, an annual state-wide program of presentations which this year carries the theme of A Safer Future for Everyone, and supports WorkSafe's vision of Victorian workers returning home each day.
It opens daily until 27 October and is located near the Collins and Spencer St corner of the station.
