The Remove Hazards campaign has come to an end after a three-month focus on creating safe environments as well as looking after your eyesight and feet to reduce the risk of falls and promote healthy ageing. While the Remove Hazards campaign saw new COVID-19 restrictions, in the spirit of Remove Hazards, Injury Matters navigated this obstacle in our path to deliver a range of activities for the community and health professionals.
The Remove Hazards campaign included a television and social media mass media campaign across WA, training for health professionals, two successful grants, and community events.
