October is National Safe Work Month, a time to commit to providing safe and healthy workplaces for all Australians. Cemeteries, crematoria and funeral homes can present some unique, unseen hazards such as exposure to silica, dust, chemicals and gases. Managing these risks is critical to keeping everyone safe.
Our guest, Micheal Lewis, is Principal Occupation Hygienist at Simtars and he has worked in the occupational health and hygiene fields for 30 years. Micheal will be talking about the unseen risks in cemeteries, crematoria and funeral homes, and how those risks can be managed within the workplace to support the safety of staff. Micheal is experienced in auditing drugs, poisons and hazardous chemicals management systems, complex health-based investigations, laboratory compliance auditing, and competency-based training package development and delivery.
