The level of work related injuries in Australian companies have been rising steadily over the past decade. Despite using the correct safety equipment and clothing, and adhering to health and safety rules, many workers get injured every single day at their work place.

At Work Active we strive to prevent workplace related injuries by tackling the problem from all angles. We believe that most work injuries can be avoided by providing staff with not only the right equipment, but also the right training to inform them how to use it properly.
