This WHS Drivers Manual has been developed to provide guidance and information for Drivers to assist in the prevention of injury or illness.
Road accidents are the cause of most fatalities in the road transport industry, and Drivers fatigue is often a factor. Workers have also been killed or seriously injured after falling from the top of their trucks while loading, checking or securing goods. More than 80% of severe injuries among road transport workers, however, are sustained while not driving. Most of these injuries are the result of manual handling, slips, trips and falls and being injured during loading/unloading practices involving forklifts.
WHS Drivers Manual contents includes:
SECTION 1 ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEDURES
SECTION 2 WORKPLACE HEALTH & SAFETY
All documents within the WHS Drivers Manual are provided in Microsoft Word (MS Word) for easy customisation/editing and are ready to use. Providing the document in MS Word means that you can make regular and necessary updates to your management system whenever you like. Note: You will need to have MS Word to open your documents.
