WORKPLACE TRAGEDY SUPPORT GROUP:

The Workplace Tragedy Family Support Group is both a support group and a campaign organisation. Most of us have lost loved ones and know first hand the deep grief and suffering caused by workplace accidents – in particular, grief caused by workplace fatalities.

We believe that our losses place us in a unique position to provide comfort and support to others who find themselves in this tragic situation.
Our aims include:
a) To provide comfort and support to those persons who have been affected by a work-related tragedy;
b) To improve industrial safety by raising awareness of the impact of a work-related death on families;
c) To ease the impact of a work-related tragedy on family members, and to assist in reducing unnecessary pain and suffering by families following a work-related tragedy.
d) To assist persons to cope with a work-related tragedy
e) To educate members, and to encourage their participation in forums and with other groups regarding work-related occupational health and safety, workers compensation and work-related tragedies.
f)  To work with, or otherwise combine with, any association, having objects similar in whole or in part to the objects of this Association.
