Making Safety Easy at WRR
Western Resource Recovery have introduced an online safety management system, MyOsh, to make safety easy for all employees. MyOsh facilitates the reporting of all hazards/near misses/incidents, storing investigation details and tracking corrective/preventative actions through to completion. WRR is now able to effectively analyse data and identify trends, and apply targeted intervention strategies to minimize the risk of incidents & injuries. Training has been implemented for all supervisors and managers not only in the use of the system, but also in conducting effective incident investigations and root cause analyses.
Jason Tranter, Technical Services Supervisor says “Work often gets hectic; having MyOsh to track my actions and give me reminders when they’re due makes my life a lot easier, and it’s user friendly.”
Promoting Safety during the high risk months
Safety incidents are more likely to occur in the November through to January period, and we recognise this is a busy time of year for everyone with many distractions. To help keep everyone safe this festive season, we are running a Safety Promotion and encouraging personnel to conduct and participate in safety walks, risk assessments, hazard/near miss reporting, and personal safety initiatives. There will be weekly $50 voucher prizes as well as a major prize just before Christmas for the Safety Star. When we return from leave, free health checks will be available for all who are interested and we will kick off the new year with a focus on being healthy and active, with a “Biggest Loser” style competition for those who wish to participate, again with prizes! Watch this space to as we work towards an injury free festive season and a happy and healthy 2018!
