Workplace safety is the number one priority for all employers and employees to implement and practice day-to-day. It is not only the responsibility of the employer to ensure their workplace remains safe by reducing hazards where possible, it is up to each individual employee to practice safe work procedures and look out for their fellow colleagues.
Body repairers are faced with many obvious and not so obvious hazards that can cause injury and jeopardise their health and safety. Knowledge, awareness and education around potential hazards is critical. One of many hazards includes exposure to isocyanates which may potentially cause severe adverse health effects. Workers who work with, or may work with isocyanates, must be warned about the risks of exposure and the potential health effects. They must also be advised of any health monitoring requirements.
Assessing the risks and implementing control measures when working with chemicals is imperative to help curb incidents affecting employee’s health in the long-term. Health, safety and wellbeing should always remain top of mind and by constantly revising critical safety information workers can remain in the best position to stay safe.
To assist, Pro-Visual Publishing in conjunction with the National Safety Council of Australia Foundation, the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers, the Australian Autoglass Industry Alliance and the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Australasia has released the 2020/1 edition of the Body Repairers Guide to Workplace Safety. The Guide provides further information on working with isocyanates as well as additional key safety information relevant to the industry.
The Guide is a free of charge, 1m x 1m poster and features Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities, allowing The Guide to become digitally interactive. By downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app, workers can use their smart device to scan any AR capable content to access two additional PDF files.
