This workshop is designed to empower the management team to train staff members on the importance of working safely in the current post SHaW Act proclamation era. Exposure to the contents of the Act along with industry best practice and practical exposure will empower them to more effectively lead while ensuring they have the information to effectively promote and maintain health and safety in the workplace. This Program examines the requirements for risk assessments of which hazard spotting is the first and most important step.
