Its National Safe Work Month and we’re following Safe Work Australia in the quest for safer work practices. At Anchor Safe, we strongly believe every month is safe work month, however we always look forward to October and the hype around safety. We have recently released a series of Safe Work videos to help your business and employees improve workplace safety.
Our first episode illustrates the need for inspecting your PPE before each use. There’s nothing worse then a false sense of security and somebody who believes there equipment’s fit for use could end in disaster, could be as simple as a body harness that doesn’t fit properly, using incorrect rope lengths, having an unsecured guardrail. All these things only take a moment to inspect to determine if its safe to go ahead and work on the roof. Knowing how to inspect your equipment before use is extremely important. Watch Savvy Steve below go through the inspection steps.
This October commit to improving health and safety in your workplace.
