For today’s news go to the OHSIntros blog on Facebook. Join the conversation about important OHS matters as they develop and link up with others in the OHS community. This blog is read by OHS people around Australia and also overseas:
OHSIntros publishes annual discussion papers on the level of work-related harm in Victoria and the performance of the state’s OHS and workers compensation system responsible for reducing harm caused by unsafe work. These papers encourage discussion about how the level of OHS performance can be improved.
The papers are posted on the internet for downloading. Eight have been produced to July 2018. Copies are also available by sending a request to the OHSIntros blog.
If exposure to hazards is overlooked at a workplace, it is only a matter of time before someone gets hurt. Hazards of modern work are both physical and mental. New hazards can arise at any time, and the risk from existing hazards increases as work and workplaces change.
