Tradies' National Health Month

It’s #tradiesnationalhealthmonth! A month about giving the spotlight to the health, safety and wellbeing of tradespeople in Australia.

The most common hazards that cause incidents are work from heights, asbestos, electricity, heavy lifting, manual handling and excessive noise.

When not properly managed, the chances of slips, trips, falls, pain, muscle stress and strain are greatly increased…

There are several processes you can have in place as an employer to promote a safe working environment, these include but are not limited to:

⚠ Ensure clear documentation is circulated to all employees on a regular basis detailing any legislative updates, information on PPE and company specific health and safety procedures

⚠ Encourage employees to come to you with any concerns they may have

⚠ Obtain professional assistance from a WHS Consultant specialising in Health, Safety and Environmental quality consultancy & management systems.
