A large percentage of all eye injuries in Australia happens in the workplace. Jobs that are high risk for eye injuries have been identified by Better Health Victoria as those that involve chemicals, compressed air, and equipment that grinds, chips, sprays or cuts, for example.
All businesses, big and small alike, will have an impact on the environment to some degree. Businesses need to follow regulations that are in place to minimise this impact.
Your business should have an environmental management plan (EMP) in place. This is regardless of whether it operates out of a small workshop or a large scale commercial warehouse.
Stormwater originates from rain. It flows into drains, soaks into soil, pools on surfaces, creates surface runoff and evaporates. This water is untreated and eventually reaches our groundwaters, rivers and seas.
As a business, you have a responsibility to help keep this stormwater clean. Stormwater should be free of pollutants like oils, heavy metals and other industrial waste.
