At Belgravia Leisure, we believe that our people are our most valued asset. Their health and safety is our top priority and that’s why we are shining a spotlight on National Safe Work Month in October.
National Safe Work Month is a time for us to commit to building a safe and healthy workplace. This year, the theme for Work Safe Month is think safe. work safe. be safe. to raise awareness of the importance of work health and safety at our workplace.
National Safe Work Month gives us an opportunity to think about how we promote WHS at Belgravia Leisure and what we can do to ensure all of us are safe and healthy at work.
One important way that we can ensure we are staying on top of our safety obligations is by completing the obligatory annual WHS Audit.
Belgravia Leisure Group WHS Manager Trent O’Hara urges all venues to immediately start the process for their WHS audits. “Sites can still audit during lockdown (if possible) as safety work is a lockdown exemption. All year-round sites and seasonal pools that audit earlier than October (as they transitioned in), will not have to complete another WHS Audit in October,” he explained.
