In Australia, accidents in the retail workplace cost millions of dollars per year in direct costs and loss of production. Every year many people suffer a long-term injury, which affects their ability to work and enjoy life. Some even die. Employers and employees have legal responsibilities to keep workplaces safe and to reduce these risks, and the retail environment has some unique OHS conditions that you need to be aware of. In this program we hear from both WorkSafe Victoria and the Shop Distributive and Allied Employees Association, as well as coal-face expertise from leading retailer Woolworths about the effects of workplace injuries, legal obligations, employer responsibilities, employee responsibilities, the main types of injuries and what to do if there is an OH&S issue. A positive and pro-active look at the issues and how to make your retail workplace safe.
