WorkSafe WA running workshops in October on a wide range of health and safety matters

WorkSafe WA runs a popular series of safety and health workshops each year and the 2014 series will be held through October.

The workshops provide an opportunity to hear from experts in the field as well as gaining useful practical tools and strategies that can be applied in the workplace.

I have found these workshops to be well worth the investment --

The workshops run for 2-3 hours each on average and the cost is $43.30 per participant. I have found these workshops to be well worth the investment -- they will be useful for business owners and line managers as well as safety and health representatives and practitioners.
