A research conducted by Colmar Brunton has found that, while most Australians understand the dangers of asbestos, only a few have practical skills to identify asbestos products and handle them safely.

australian access control system wins global acceptance

Western Australia-based company CASWA has created a new easy-to-use technology that significantly reduces both operational health and safety (OHS) and business risk associated with industrial equipment use. The new Access Pack technology was first aimed at high-risk equipment but, owing to its simplicity and versatility, it is now being installed on a variety of equipment across a range of industries around the world. Access Pack uses smart card technology to prevent unauthorized operators from using high risk or critical equipment such as cranes, production critical machines, hydraulic power packs, lathes, presses, computer numerical control (CNC) plant and breakout machines, as well as vehicles such as forklifts, diggers and elevated lifting platforms. This improves OHS outcomes, as users need appropriate ‘tickets’ including qualifications, accreditation, training and/or inductions in order to operate equipment. It…
