Safety conversations

Welcome to 2016.  This year brings change to health and safety with the Health and Safety at Work Act coming into force on 4 April 2016.

The start of the year is a good time to reinforce the need to be safe and healthy at work.  We are only human and sometimes after a holiday we forget some basics.  The weather is hot (only some days when it is not wet!) so remember the sun block if you are outside and keep wearing those safety shoes if required.  Hot, smelly feet are better than injured feet.  I would encourage you to talk about health and safety at work and do not be afraid to tell someone if you think their behaviour is unsafe.

WorkSafe is releasing guidance about the new act and there is a useful section of FAQs.  This might be a good conversation starter for you.
