Safe work month

Is accident prevention a key priority in your workplace?

  1. Do you have clear procedures and risk controls to support safety?
  2. Is health and safety included in orientation?
  3. Are your health and safety representatives trained?
  4. Is health and safety part of annual mandatory training?
  5. Is the training appropriate, for example practical as well as theoretical manual handling training?

Employers have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure employees are systematically and adequately trained. This means that organisations must have clear procedures to help staff work effectively, efficiently and safely both now and in the future.

With October being Safe Work Month, it is a timely reminder of the importance of having effective safety measures in place and adequate resources to anticipate and eliminate risk.

No matter what health and safety challenges you face, whether you need one time advice or a full range of services, we are ready to work with you to assess your needs, evaluate options, and develop and implement solutions.
