WorkSafe Victoria’s current priority hazards, industries and emerging issues were discussed by Tim McLean, Director Improvement Programs at WorkSafe in a lunchtime presentation on June 16, 2015. The priority hazards range from mandatory work, such as construction and dangerous goods to strategic work with both physical and psychosocial risks as well as occupational violence and worker health.The strategic approach includes addressing supply chains and networks; elimination of risk at source; improved compliance and risk control; increase in awareness and capability; working with and through others; and a whole of organisation approach at WorkSafe itself.Industries in focus are wide-ranging: health; construction; agriculture; manufacturing; warehousing and transport.
