New Scania health and safety video

Although Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) knowledge and training have increased significantly in recent years, the risk of workplace injuries will always exist. One vulnerable body part is the back.

Scania has therefore published a video to illustrate some basic principles to avoid back injury, most of which can be avoided with the right workplace behaviour.

“The Australian Government's National OH&S Strategy 2002-2012 aimed to raise awareness of the importance of safety training, improve collection and analysis of workers’ compensation data, and harmonise the states and territories’ work health and safety legislation,” said the Australian Social Trends, Jun 2011 survey from the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

 

“Initial indications suggest that the focus on OHS may be paying dividends with increased rates of OHS training, and declining rates of both workplace fatalities and injuries. These trends will need to continue in coming years to meet the reduction targets.”
