August 27, 2010

WorkCover NSW will run free workshops later this year to educate the trucking industry on new health and safety laws to be introduced in 2012.

To be held during the Safety Show and Sydney Materials Handling, WorkCover will use the 45-minute workshops to summarise and explain the new laws and what operators can expect when they are implemented on January 1, 2012.

The workshops will be held daily from October 26 to 28

"Statistically one of Australia's most dangerous sectors, WorkCover records show that NSW's transport drivers faced a greater risk of death than any other worker," the government agency says.
