A NEW informative video has called upon small business owners to take advantage of their employer associations when implementing work health and safety procedures to ensure compliance with regulatory expectations.

Developed by the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), of which AMMA is a member, the video compiles input from small businesses and features questions about compliance and improving health and safety outcomes.

Minister for Employment Senator Eric Abetz last week launched the video to correspond with Safe Work Australia Month under the banner Safety is a Frame of Mind.

ACCI chief executive Peter Anderson said the role employer associations play in providing OHS support to their members is crucial.

“Work health and safety red tape looms large in ACCI surveys and Safe Work Australia’s research shows that businesses rely on their trusted business association for guidance,” he said.

“This video asks some of the questions business raise when they implement new safety arrangements within their organisations, and through their employer associations, they can secure answers and learn from the experiences of others.”
