Every time we get in our cars we’re potentially putting our lives at risk. Being aware of the car we drive and understanding our car’s safety technology and how it works can greatly improve our driving safety.
This program is designed to make us more aware of the cars we drive, and in so doing, make us more conscious of what we’re doing when we’re behind the wheel.
This program looks at:
Sitting in the car correctly:
Being an aware driver is fundamental to being a safe driver. It is the responsibility of every driver to know their car and to be aware of the way they drive. Increasing our awareness as drivers means that every time we’re in the car we’re putting safety first.

Road safety is a major public safety issue. A large proportion of road travel is work-related, and research shows that work vehicles are involved in accidents at a higher rate than private vehicles.
This program examines the important role played by all members of an organisation in avoiding accidents, including observing warning signs and maintaining strict adherence to company policy.
Topics included in the program:
Work-related driving presents some significant safety challenges. But, with due care and attention accidents and injuries can and will be reduced.

Elevating Work Platforms are also referred to as EWPs or Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs). The use of EWPs has been a major factor in the reduction of falls accidents in the workplace, and in many cases, the use of an EWP is the safest solution to enabling temporary work at height.
However, the use of EWPs is not risk free. There are many potential hazards associated with the use of EWPs.
This comprehensive EWP safety program covers:
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of operating EWPs safely and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.

Forklifts – sometimes called Lift Trucks – are a common sight in many workplaces, and often make the lifting and transporting of goods and materials much easier and safer.
But without good safety practices and procedures in place forklifts can be very dangerous. In fact, forklifts are a leading cause of workplace deaths and injuries.
A loaded forklift can weigh many tonnes, and do a lot of damage in the event of an accident. In addition, they are frequently less stable than many other vehicles.
This comprehensive forklift safety program covers:
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of operating Forklifts safely and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.

Cuts, burns, amputations, exposures to hazardous substances, electric shocks, asphyxiations and drownings are just some examples of consequences that can occur when work is carried out on plant and equipment that has not been properly shutdown.
The shutdown of plant and equipment before work is carried out is commonly referred to as a lockout or a lockout/tagout.
Lockouts protect the health and safety of the people working directly on the piece of equipment or plant as well as others who may be in the vicinity.
This program covers:
The objective of this program is to highlight the importance of following Lockout Procedures and by so doing, increase awareness of the standards for worker responsibility in observing and being active in daily safety procedures.

Accidents resulting from inadequate equipment and machine guarding cause some of the most traumatic injuries in the workplace today.
This program covers the following:
Advances in technology, safety standards and risk management have all contributed to increasingly effective guards being used in the workplace today, but despite all these advances, horrific accidents still occur.
When guards are not in place or when guards are not used correctly, people can be pulled into machines, have limbs amputated and body parts crushed.
It is therefore critical that we are aware of and understand the elements covered in this program. This will help all workplace personnel to avoid accidents and injuries when working with equipment and machinery.
