Industrial professionals are being urged to sign-up for Work Safe Week, which is being held from 25 to 29 October 2010.
The week-long event – hosted by WorkSafe Victoria – is designed to bring manufacturers and other industries up to speed with developments in workplace safety and health.
Small, medium and large businesses, office workers, labourers, apprentices and managers in Victoria are all encouraged to participate in Work Safe Week.
According to WorkSafe Victoria, last year over 7,000 people showed their commitment to improving workplace safety by attending the Work Safe Week seminars and events that were held across the state.
In 2010 over 100 seminars and events are being held across Melbourne and regional Victoria. From conferences, educational seminars and panel discussions to interactive workshops, displays, breakfasts and BBQ’s, there’s something for everyone, WorkSafe Victoria says.
WorkSafe and other industry experts will cover a range of safety related topics including: the new OHS laws to manual handling; Return to Work; work related stress; bullying; and health and wellbeing.
