Employers urged to amplify efforts on workplace health and safety

Live Performance Australia (LPA) urges employers to amplify efforts to keep workplaces safe as part of today's World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Workers’ Memorial Day.

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work and Worker’s Memorial Day are international campaigns to promote safe, healthy and decent work and honour those who have tragically lost their lives in the workplace.

LPA Chief Executive, Evelyn Richardson said while health and safety in the workplace should always be top of mind, today further highlights the severe impact caused by unsafe workplaces on so many lives.

“It is very important we do not become complacent about health and safety in the workplace and that we emphasise the important role everyone in the workplace plays in protecting each other,” said Ms Richardson.

“The live performance industry is very much aware of the risks inherent in presenting shows and LPA offers a range of resources available to its Members which are designed to improve workplace health and safety within the live performance industry.”

Later in the year, LPA will also deliver a national roadshow on workplace health and safety, highlighting the importance of creating an organisational culture that values the safety of all its stakeholders.

As the peak body for the Australian live performance industry, LPA is committed to achieving a safe, viable and sustainable live performance industry.
