Inaugural Transport forum a success
27 September 2012
Presentations from our first Transport industry forum are now available. Snapshots of the presentations are available on our YouTube channel and below, which provide information on strategies employers in the transport industry can implement to improve workplace safety and injury management.
You can also find out what initiatives WHSQ have released and are working on plus advice on managing workers' health at work.
On Wednesday 26 September, we held a forum for the Transport industry where a small group of employers were invited to get involved in a discussion and hear from workplace safety and wellness experts.
Feedback from the forum was that people would attend future forums and they would like to learn more about forklift use and injury prevention, updates on new initiatives and psychological or psychiatric injuries (PPI).
Customer Services Manager, Matt Cross said people also appreciated having the opportunity to meet with industry peers and participate in group discussions.
“Feedback also highlighted that employers would like a forum specifically for bus, taxi and water transport so this is what we’ll arrange for the next forum,” Matt said.
“It was also evident people enjoyed being able to speak with industry peers and hear from industry experts. Karen Bow from Workplace Health and Safety Queensland discussed a vast range of tools and initiatives they’re working on, which many employers were unaware of.”
WorkCover Queensland and WHSQ are committed to providing user friendly and cost effective tools employers can use to prevent workplace injuries, improve wellness and injury management outcomes.
