The Risk?

“Each year incidents in Australian workplaces result in:

  • A total of 133,188 employment injuries were reported in 2008/09  
  • 49% of all injuries in the Nursery & Garden Industry are caused by manual handling tasks.
  • Enormous pain and suffering for employees and their families. Therefore, these figures alone demand better workplace safety”

-- by Ron Widman, the WHS Co-ordinator of NGINA.
