Downward trend continues for work related fatalities

Safe Work Australia has published the latest Work-related Traumatic Injury Fatalities report, providing details on the number of people who have died in Australia from work-related injuries.

The report shows that in 2015, 195 workers died from injuries received at work. This continues the positive downward trend in the worker fatality rate with 1.6 fatalities per 100,000 workers recorded in 2015 – the lowest rate since the report series began in 2003.

Lets hope that this trend continues towards ZERO

COVID-19 UPDATE

The venues we use especially in the Sydney region are clubs, as such, they have the right to set their own restrictions around who can and cannot enter the facility. These restrictions are totally out of our control and not always in line with Health Guidelines. We recommend you contact the venue you are booked to attend the day before the course and check that you are not restricted based on your individual situation. We can transfer your registration free of charge (if due to COVID venue restriction)  only if we are notified the day before a course. Normal cancellation policies will apply if we are not contacted prior to the event.

We are taking all required steps to ensure everyone’s safety including removing tables, no breaths required when doing CPR, ample cleansing wipes, refusal of attendance for any participants presenting with flu or cold symptoms, or those that should be self-isolating. 

Our standing request for unwell students: If you are unwell with any type of “cold or flu” we will NOT ALLOW YOU TO ENTER THE COURSE.

Face masks are not mandatory but we recognize you may choose to wear a mask when visiting our venues
