Members are advised that WorkCover NSW has recently released a new video safety alert. This professional production from WorkCover NSW is a timely reminder of the serious impact that every day work practices can have if not carried out properly.
The promotion of this video clip is in keeping with our focus on risk based approaches, simplified information and the needs for industry related topcis such as falls from flatbeds. An experienced truck driver died when he fell from a trailer during loading.
Falls from flatbed trucks are often serious and in some instances fatal, and this video outlines simple tips to help keep your employees safe while loaing and unloading. WorkCover NSW filmed the video at a single location that showed a range of controls but the tips themselves are relevant to most businesses.
Members are encouraged to watch the video which runs for less than 3 minutes and to share it through your own networks. You may also find it useful when training or inducting staff.
