I wish to thank you and your team so much for the first aid supplies that you donated to Oasis Foundation. The doctors and staff at the little medical centre in the Laos rural village were very, very appreciative of the gift. They said to me, "I love you!" which was the only English they knew. Here are some photos of the staff, the centre and meagre supplies. They service a population of about 2000. The nearest hospital is 2hrs away, so non-life threatening operations are performed there too, the same with difficult births. They are definitely not equipped to deal with most of this. Though, they do their best for the community”. Oasis Foundation

Manual Handling Forseeable Hazards

Employers have obligations under the Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 to identify any foreseeable hazards that may arise in the workplace and to assess the risk of harm arising from the identified hazards. Employers then have an obligation to eliminate the hazards. If this is not "reasonably practicable" they must control the risks by implementing measures to lessen the risk of harm to the lowest possible level.

Manual Handling-Risk assessment

Work Health and Safety Regulations 2011 require employers to carry out and implement Risk Assessment and Risk Management strategies for workplaces. Risk management is the logical and systematic approach to identifying, assessing, controlling and reviewing the risks associated with any activity, function or process, in a way that will enable organisations to minimise losses associated with workplace injury whilst maximising injury prevention opportunities.
