Free safety first videos for transport


Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has made available a number of trucking-related videos as part of October’s Safe Work Month

 

Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has given prime space to the road transport industry as part of October’s National Safe Work Month. This has taken on greater importance in 2020 due to the repercussions of COVID-19 upon the working lives of all Australians.

Safe Work Australia in each state are involved, however Workplace Health and Safety Queensland are offering free virtual events and videos of industry-specific topics, including the trucking industry. The virtual events can be viewed by simply by registering on its website at www.worksafe.qld.gov.au.

Live-streamed expert speakers and panels are covering topics including the ongoing health and safety implications of COVID-19; wellbeing programs; safety culture and leadership; rehabilitation and return to work; and mental health.

For transport videos, the Workplace Health and Safety Queensland site offers links to presentations including Safely Securing Loads of Trucks (see video above), Vehicle Loading Cranes Workshop, Safe Systems to Immobilise Heavy Vehicles and Trailers, Managing Your Drivers’ Safety at Delivery Points, and Preventing Workers Falling From Trucks.

For any newcomers to road transport, and even experienced operators, the site is well worth a look.

It illustrates that Workplace Health and Safety Queensland, which comes under the Office of Industrial Relations, is serious about keeping trucking industry workers safe.
