All companies have some sort of organised workplace housekeeping, but what they don’t understand is how crucial housekeeping is to keeping workers safe. Setting up a functional workplace housekeeping program could costs less than a single injury, and less than workers repeatedly handling materials.
Employees best manage their energy at work through setting goals and switching tasks as well as recovering after work through relaxation, are more likely to be healthy, engaged and productive. The most regularly used approaches were having a snack or coffee, socially interacting with colleges on non-work-related issues and making to-do lists.
The Australian Government’s Department of Health has started funding a new campaign to address mental health issues among ‘blue-collar’ workers.

An OSH management system is essential for ensuring workers are protected from injury and employees are meeting their legal requirements. While many workplaces will have a written OSH management system, the basics can be overlooked resulting in OSH management that looks better on paper than in practice. Scope HSEQ can help you address the essentials of OSH management systems to ensure overall Quality Safety compliance.

Almost 45% of employers in small businesses do not provide their workers any Health and Safety training. All employers are responsible for providing Health and Safety information and training to employees to equip them with the skills and knowledge to perform their role safely and ensure they are not exposed to hazards. A workplace that is not ‘healthy and safe’ may be in breach of legislation and may face insurance claims, medical bills, higher insurance premiums, replacement labour costs and lost productive time.
To ensure your workplace and your valued employees are as healthy and safe as possible, contact Scope HSEQ on 9216 7407 to discuss.
