Safe Work Month 2015 Re-Cap
A message from WorkPac’s National Safety and Risk Manager, Rachel Pearse on National Safe Work Month 2015.
"With October being National Safe Work Month, we decided this was a great opportunity for us to focus on and promote safety in the workplace to reduce death, injury and disease in support of this year’s theme, Be safe. Be healthy. Because….
The involvement from our Business Centres and FTMs has been overwhelming and we don’t intend to stop just because October is over. We are committed to keeping the energy high and the momentum going, staying focused on ensuring we all go home to the things that matter each and every day!"
In WorkPac Biloela
The Biloela Team attended a WorkPac Toolbox Meeting at Ostwalds, Moura. WorkPac have had several onsite injuries so we arranged a safety awareness breakfast BBQ, just one of the ways we promote our commitment to a zero harm workplace. The BBQ gave us an opportunity to discuss the importance of identifying hazards, looking out for your mates, presenting fit for work and most importantly managing your fatigue coming into the festive season.
In WorkPac Townsville
The WorkPac Townsville team promoted Sun Safety & Hydration. Being a hot and humid region with some extreme UV ratings, the team focused on the slip, slop, slap message and the importance of drinking at least 1.5 litres of water a day.
