The right to work safely is one of the principal rights we expect as Australians. Whether we work in mines, construction sites, hospitals, schools or offices, we all rightly expect to be safe in our day-to-day work. Thankfully, the vast majority of us get through every day—working hard to provide for ourselves and our families—without incident, and return home safely.
