Contractors learn safety first at workshop

Contractors learn safety first at workshop

JUNE 2015 |

MEANDER VALLEY Council recently held an induction evening for contractors at Westbury.

All organisations including contractors are responsible for providing safe places and systems of work.

Safety is a serious business and it was encouraging to see 50 people attend the event. A Worksafe Inspector from the Department of Justice spoke to the group and there were a number of Work Health and Safety consultants on-hand to speak to contractors in a less  formal situation.

The evening included a general work health and safety induction.

Comments flowed from participants: “It was one of the more interesting safety inductions in that it was succinct and open with the emphasis on getting it right and timely reporting.”

“Well done on hosting the induction evening last week. I personally spoke to a few business owners and managers and found the evening quite useful. “

“I just wanted to thank you for the invite for the night, it was very interesting and I could see that the Council is very proactive in this area. Good turn out too!”

For anyone who missed out, please contact Council’s Work, Health and Safety Officer, Sam Bailey on 0437 351 310 to make alternative arrangements, or register your interest for Council’s next Contractor Information and Induction Evening.
