Workers in all occupations across the state are being urged to learn the latest and stay up to date by attending a seminar during 2007's Work Safe Week.
Learn the latest and stay up to date is this year’s Work Safe Week theme. It is a reminder that we can all benefit from a little more information on preventing workplace injuries.
Less than three weeks away, Work Safe Week from 22-26 October is everyone’s opportunity to hear and see the latest health and safety initiatives in their area.
Work Safe Week seminars will be led by marathon swimmer Tammy Van Wisse, North Pole adventurer Graeme Joy, workplace injury survivor Phillip Smallman (paraplegic as a result of a fall), Victorian Coroner Graeme Johnstone and psychologist Dr Michael Carr-Greg.
Registrations are now open for the seminars including the latest on manual handling, issues facing young workers, effective return to work, work-related fatigue, stress prevention and a back to basics information session for manufacturing workers.
The annual WorkSafe Awards from WorkSafe Victoria will be announced on Tuesday 23 October at Crown Palladium.
