Why Training and Why Us?

Why Training?

Workplace safety is everything!!.
In WA the safety and health of all people at a workplace is covered by Occupational Safety and Health Act (1984).
Worksafe WA states: ".................it is the employer's responsibility under the Occupational Safety and Health Act 1984 to provide a safe working environment and to introduce safe work procedures to prevent employees being exposed to hazards....The employer must also provide adequate information, instruction, training and supervision to enable employees to work in a safe manner. "

The Implications

If we don't get workplace safety right, the implications in human costs are enormous........ and then there are the legal and financial costs to be considered.
Worksafe WA states:
" More than 50 people are injured by chainsaws at work in WA each year."(Worksafe WA)
This results in the obvious pain and suffering for the injured people plus the medical costs, lost time, workers compensation  and possible legal penalties for employers & employees if they are found to have failed to comply with the Act.

It is simply too important to ignore!

The solution

The first line of defence against injury is instruction and training under the supervision of a trained and experienced person.
