WORK, HEALTH & SAFETY
Winston Hills Mall has a WHS and Environmental Policy in place. This is to help ensure that all retailers, staff, contractors and patrons can work and shop in a safe environment. All retailers, staff and contractors must comply with all applicable occupational health, safety and environmental WHS laws, statutes, regulations and by laws and applicable laws, all applicable codes of practice, standards and the recommendations of manufacturers/suppliers.
Through findings presented on the SafeWork NSW website on the Retail Trade we discovered the most common causes of injury are: lifting or moving heavy objects, slips and trips and falls on the same level and from heights. For hazards, long hours standing, lifting and moving heavy objects, working with dangerous chemicals i.e. hot oil, are just some of the common features of retail workplaces.
You need to know what the hazards are in your business and be able to assess the risks they pose.
