New construction and mining safety guides released
Workplace health and safety publishing business Pro-Visual has released its mining safety guide for 2013, as well as construction safety guides for Western Australia and Victoria.
The Mining Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2013 and Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety 2013 WA and VIC are written in collaboration with experts in the respective industries and aim to provide up-to-date safety information for all workers within the industries.
The wall-mounted charts touch on issues such as personal health and wellbeing, hazard identification and responsibilities of employers and employees alike.
Pro-Visual says this year's guides have a special focus on plant machinery. The guides highlight some of the most common injuries that can be sustained through the operation of plant equipment, ways to prevent them and proper guidelines on usage of such machinery.
Other main topics featured in this year's mining guide include Fatigue and Bullying & Harrasment.
The company also produces construction safety guides for New South Wales and Queensland.
The guides are distributed free of charge to businesses in the respective industries and recipients are given the opportunity to enter a competition worth $5,000.
