Victorian employers can learn under a new safety innovation program sponsored by WorkSafe Victoria.
WorkSafe Insights allows Victorian businesses to get the inside story on how their peers have successfully managed OHS with proven results.
WorkSafe Insights promotes best practice in occupational health and safety for businesses.
WorkSafe Insights allows companies that have been through the process of change with positive results to help others facing the same issues.
WorkSafe Insights is being delivered by Insights to Excellence – a not-for-profit organisation that fosters and promotes awareness of industry excellence and best practice.
Insights to Excellence runs the Victorian Government’s Innovation Insights program, which has involved more than 4,300 people from nearly 700 companies who have visited 174 participating organisations since 2003.
Just like Innovation Insights, WorkSafe Insights visits are hosted by organisations recognised for their improvements and achievements in OHS. Many of them have been finalists in the prestigious WorkSafe Awards.
WorkSafe Insights includes a presentation by the host company, followed by a tour of the facility to see improvements first hand. WorkSafe Insights ends with a comprehensive de-brief and review of what was learnt.
WorkSafe Insights helps small to medium-sized businesses witness best practice safety solutions and innovation first-hand and will inspire them to strive for excellence.
Witnessing successful business innovations in action and having the opportunity to ask questions, increases the chance of applying what is learnt.
The first two WorkSafe Insights confirmed for 2007 are Manningham City Council (WorkSafe Awards – Workplace Health and Safety Committee of the Year finalist) on 8 May and TNT Express (WorkSafe Awards - Workplace Health and Safety Committee of the Year recipient) on May 29.
