The HSWA 2015 was designed to get everyone communicating so that we can all go home safely to our families at the end of each working day.
Are we communicating and ensuring that our workers are safe? It appears not.
Last week Perry Metal Protection Limited and Total Access Limitedwere fined $227,500 and $165,00 respectively and ordered to pay reparation of $34,000 each to the affected parties after failing to discuss risks from hazardous chemicals which caused serious burns to two of Total Access's workers.

These injuries could have been avoided had the two companies communicated more efficiently and carried out a thorough review of the hazards they were exposing these workers too.
So come on everyone let's get communicating so that the HSWA 2015 can work for all of us. And what better way to do that then by using technology.
