The 2017 National Safe Work Month theme is “Sharing safety, knowledge and experience benefits everyone” and Safe Work Australia want you to share the things you do, both big and small, that make your workplace safer and healthier.
One way we share knowledge is via the HMS LMS website, with a new portal being launched this month to coincide with National Safe Work Month. The HMS Work Health and Safety LMS site is here to help us share information and resources that will improve safety and health in our workplaces.
The portal includes a host of information, practical hints and tips, a discussion board, all faculty site information, including parking and maps, a wellness forum, a standard operating procedures library, and events information.
WorkSafe Western Australia is hosting a series of workshops in Perth during National Safe Work Month, so why not get involved!
