Did you know that between 2012 and 2015 there were more than 6000 injuries in NSW workplaces as a result of workers’ handling storing or using hazardous chemicals unsafely. Eight people died and more than 250 are now permanently disabled.
These fatalities and injuries are 100% preventable when the workplace is safe and the simplest of control measures are used, like ventilators, respirators, gloves and goggles. Not only is there a significant cultural and social impact on businesses and their employees and their families, but also massive workers compensation premium implications, and potential prosecution.
