New stats show spike in accident rates

Locals urged to stay safe at work!

Sunraysia residents are being urged to take as much as time as they need to do their jobs safely in the lead up to Christmas.


The call comes with new data from WorkSafe Victoria, showing the number of workplace facilities increasing dramatically at this time of year.


25% of all workplace deaths in the past decade have occurred in November and December, with one person dying and two people getting seriously injured in the past week alone.


With a total of 17 people dying as a result of workplace accidents in the past three years, Worksafe Victoria are now looking to bring light to the horrible statistics.


WorkSafe Victoria's Marnie Williams says people shouldn't start rushing to get things done just because the holiday period is just around the corner.
