Wellness Month is October 2020
Mental Health Week; Work Safe Week and World Teachers Day.
October is a busy month for companies & employers looking to implement wellness and well-being initiatives for their employees. Australia is focusing on Mental Health Week from the 10th – 17th. Work Safe Month has activities each week in October and we are celebrating all teachers on World Teachers Day Friday 30th October.
Onsite seated massage, yoga/meditation classes or general health checks are an ideal way to celebrate and support your staff throughout October.
Mental Health Week – 10th – 17th October.
Mental Health Week is celebrated all around Australia, with each state and territory adopting its own theme and holding their own events each year.
In 2020, the Mental Health Week theme is Strengthening Our Community – Live, Learn, Work, Play. The aim is to increase mental wellbeing in local communities across Australia.
The events of recent times have been challenging and we would like to take this opportunity to bring awareness to the need to support people’s mental health now and into the future.
We can provide a holistic approach to mental health, by nurturing one another, sharing ideas, and learning from each other through every-day activities.
Mental Health Week has been coordinated in WA by the Western Australian Association for Mental Health (WAAMH) for more than 50 years and is supported by the Government of Western Australia, Mental Health Commission and Lotterywest, plus many community organisations.
Work Safe Month – Working together for health and safety this October
Safe Work Australia is the national policy agency responsible for WHS and workers’ compensation arrangements in Australia. Since 2009, they have run a national campaign each October to raise awareness of WHS and provide resources for Australian workplaces to run their own events.
Individuals, their families and the broader community are all impacted by work-related injury and illness. Last year in Australia, Safe Work Australia preliminary data shows that around 180 people died while doing their job. Around 107,000 people made a workers’ compensation claim for serious injury or illness in 2017-18.
No one should be unsafe at work and no injury or death is acceptable. There is more that we can do, and together we can make a difference.
This is why, during October each year, we ask businesses, employers and workers, across Australia to join National Safe Work Month and commit to providing safe and healthy workplaces for all Australian
World Teachers Day – Australia – Friday 30th October 2020
A day to acknowledge the efforts and important contribution teachers make to our society.
Celebrated in more than 100 countries, World Teachers’ Day was established by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) in 1994. It is held internationally on the 5th of October, however as the day usually falls during school holidays, Australia holds its celebrations on the last Friday of October each year.
One of the most significant reasons teachers leave the profession is due to high levels of stress. Massage addresses the physical as well as the mental toll that stress can take on employees – and provides an appreciated break!
With the current uncertainty in the world that is changing daily, it’s even more important than ever that we take care of mental health and celebrate recovery within our community.
In light of the public health and safety guidelines surrounding the COVID-19. We have adopted a safe COVID hygiene and infection control approach for all of our customers, clients and practitioners.
You can be assured of our adherence to all Government advice and the professionalism of our team.
