Dear Subscriber,

With Safe Work Australia reporting 170 workplace fatalities to date in 2013 this is a sobering reminder to stay focused on workplace safety as 2013 draws to a close. Please continue to look out for yourself and your work mates in the lead up to Christmas.

The NSCA wishes you all a safe and happy Christmas. Our offices will be closed from Monday 23 December and will reopen on Monday 6 January 2014.
