She explained that as a result, COTVET had adopted a policy to promote the health and safety of these categories of people. "This is done through promoting a learning and workplace culture where students and employees are supported and encouraged to adhere to health and safety practices," she said. The workshop was organised for participants to validate the OH&S manual, since it would serve as a guide for promoting and institutionalising OH&S practices in TVET institutions and workplaces. Madam Andoh said the Council worked in partnership with employees, students and their representatives to develop and implement measures to eliminate and minimise the risk of injury and illness. She said the poorest, least protected, least informed and least trained workers faced the highest risks in terms of work-related accidents and illnesses. "The most vulnerable people including students, women, children, persons with disabilities among others are sadly more prone to becoming victims," Madam Andoh said. "It is interesting to know that these victims and their families faced extreme poverty, in addition to the physical and psychological consequences. "The fact is that on-the-job accidents dont just happen they are caused and causes can be addressed, and the suffering can be also be prevented," she added. Madam Andoh noted that in a growing number of learning environment, workplaces, employees and employers are demonstrating through cooperation and dialogue that it was possible to create safer, healthier workplaces and, at the same time, to improve productivity and organisational performance.

Worksafe inspectors came to breakfast at Witt recently to dispel a few myths and open communication lines with employers. "Breakfast with the Inspectors" was organised by The Taranaki Construction Group, which comprises Health and Safety Training Organisations and representatives from the Taranaki construction industry. About 80 members were given an insight into the similarities and differences between a policeman monitoring a speed radar and a safety inspector by Thomas Visagie. "For starters we don't hide behind bushes," he said. "But just as when you go over the speed limit, by accident or not, there can be consequences." READ MORE: People tended to shy away from inspectors when they met but it was interesting to see that the more they talked, the more useful information about Health and Safety Training incidents came forth, he said. Safety was not an exact science. "You strive to minimise risk but the consequence doesn't change and human error comes into play." Providing a safe environment was the key and that included for the boss as well as the employee. He said New Plymouth data for 2015 showed there were 131 severe injury claims and 7785 days lost as a consequence of work-related accidents. "Each claim relates to about two months off work think about the impact on you and on your workers." He said the job of inspectors was to engage and educate.
