The actual World Day is on the Saturday, but we are bringing things forward 24 hours to use our Toolbox talk to focus on promoting safety and health in our workplace - something that we practice daily, hourly and by the minute but as they say, enough is never enough!
Our safety slogan is 'Think SMART, before you START’. We use a combination of Take 5's, SOP (Safe Operating Procedures) and SWMS/JSA's combine to ensure that our works are well thought through and risks are considered every step of the way.
The Toolbox meeting will particularly feature 'Young workers' as they have been found to have an increased risk of workplace injury due to their lack of experience, maturity and awareness of OHS responsibilities. Jack, our youngest worker, attended this week's Safety Reps meeting as an integral part of our efforts to involve both the senior/experienced team members, and those who are just starting out in their post-apprentice sign journey.
At the Toolbox we will also honour those who have died from work-related injury or illness.
