The Automotive Mechanics Guide to Workplace Safety 2018/19 has been released.
Manual handling in the automotive industry including lifting and moving equipment, and working in awkward postures are unavoidable tasks that can often cause injury if performed incorrectly. Conducting a hazard assessment and implementing a series of control measures to reduce manual handling risks is crucial in preventing injury.
To provide some guidance is Pro-Visual Publishing in partnership with the Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers, the Australian Association of Progressive Repairers, the Australian Autoglass Industry Alliance and the Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Australasia who have released their latest edition of the Augmented Reality (AR) ‘2018/19 Automotive Mechanics Guide to Workplace Safety’.
The topics featured on the guide include manual handling, slips, trips and falls, noise exposure, the purpose of safety signs in the workplace and developing a safety management system. The information aims to provide workers with guidance on potential safety risks and hazards.
This year’s Guide also features the exciting inclusion of AR technology, providing a window to further interactive resources and information. By simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR app and scanning over any AR capable content, mechanics can obtain access to safety information straight onto their smart device.
