WorkSafeVIC and Supply Chain Industry Alliance have joined forces to create a series of resources that encourage workers to speak up about safety.
Workplaces can use the resources of the two major bodies to create their own “speak up” campaign.
“This project is a great example of WorkSafe and industry using their collective knowledge to target a challenging issue,” says Jason Howard, Operational Strategy Manager for WorkSafe VIC.
“We’re hoping it sets a precedent for other industries to follow.”
A fear of speaking our about unsafe practices is a barrier to improving workplace safety in the supply chain industry.
But organisations that do empower workers and contractors to speak up can gain important information about how to improve health and safety performance, productivity and workforce morale.
