Qld workplace death and injuries drop

DYING on the job is becoming less of a risk across Queensland.

Workplace deaths and injuries fell 21.3% during the past two years.

General workplace injuries are down 8.2% and serious work-related injuries have fallen 6.1%.

While the statistics are improving, the State Government is pushing ahead with an advertising blitz to encourage workers to stay safe on the job.

Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie said Work Safe. Home Safe was a primer for Safe Work Month in October.

"Whether it is your family, your pet, or just a bit of me time, every Queenslander has something special they want to come home to at the end of a long working day," Mr Bleijie said.

"TV, radio and online ads will hit the airwaves and internet from this weekend, carrying a simple message - "what's your most important reason for workplace health and safety"."
