Safety Month 2017

Brisbane Markets Limited (BML) is a proud supporter of National Safe Work Month, which occurs annually in October.

Each year the Brisbane Markets® community shines a spotlight on safety in the Markets to encourage safe work practices among all Market users.

This year, BML has again arranged a number of competitions, workshops, activities and giveaways to promote Safety Month so everyone can get involved.

Each week forklift operators have the chance to win a $150 gift card by answering correctly three questions relating to forklift safety.

Also on offer is a $500 gift card for Market users who enter the What’s your Safety Reason? competition, which asks entrants to write down their reason for staying safe at work in 20 words or less.

Is it your children?  Your pets?  Your favourite TV show?  Or maybe even enjoying that knock-off beer?  Whatever it is, it could win you $500 just by sharing.

Online entry forms are below.

A series of workshops have also been arranged to help keep Tenant businesses informed on topics such as food safety, LPG safety and options for drug and alcohol testing.

Market users are encouraged to let BML know how they are planning to participate in Safety Month.  Is your business running additional safety talks or promotions?  Whatever it is, BML would love to hear how you’re getting involved at
