Plumbers Drained by Workplace Hazards

Studies have shown a mismatch between people’s risk assessment and their perception compared to actual health and safety practices. The ability to detect hazards and control risks within the work place is the key to a healthy and safe working environment. Pro-Visual Publishing, in affiliation with Master Plumbers Association NSW across Australia, has released the latest edition of the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety, with interactive Augmented Reality (AR) capabilities.

This year’s Guide explores a number of different topics pertaining to work place health and safety. These include, the role and responsibilities of both employees and employers and how to identify risks and hazards and the likelihood of injury. Electrical hazards from metallic pipes, how electric shocks occur and control guidelines to prevent them.

Furthermore, the harsh climate in Australia is a work place health and safety issue that is brought to attention on the Guide. The information is readily accessible as a reminder to both employers and employees, especially on those hot summer days. On the other end of the spectrum, working in cold and damp conditions is also touched on, naming the type of disorders that can occur and steps to control risks in cold environments.

“I would like to thank all the sponsors of the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2018/19. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
