Queensland – Small Business OHS Workshops
We visit lots of small businesses as part of our consultancy activities. One thing that we’ve noticed is that lots of our clients would like to invest more time and money in improving their OHS practices, but unfortunately, the budget and time available just don’t stretch that far.
As fellow small businesspeople, we understand this dilemma. So we’re pleased to pass on the information that Workplace Health and Safety Queensland has a great program of free, 2-hour OHS workshops aimed at improving baseline work health and safety in small businesses.
The workshops are held in various locations throughout Queensland, including Brisbane metro as well as regional centres such as Mackay, Rockhampton, and Wide Bay. The workshops focus on the following topics:
- The basics of health and safety
- The importance of involving workers in safety management
- What happens when a worker is injured
- Rehabilitation and return to work.
So if your organisation is short on time and funds to invest in improving OHS, these workshops might be a good option. Check out the calendar of workshops here, or visit the “Small business” section of the Workplace Health and Safety Queensland website for more information.
