​Whether you're watching the Australia Day fireworks, enjoying a cold beer, playing some sport, throwing a snag on the barbie or streaming the Hottest 100 today, chances are you're using products that depend on coal. The steel hotplate on a BBQ comes from iron ore and coking coal, carbon and steel can be found in our fireworks displays and that paracetamol you'll be reaching for on Friday morning? It uses coal-tar.

So while you're enjoying the public holiday, remember to appreciate the hard working WorkPac employees who are onsite at the mines, getting coal on the belt.
