Flushing Hazards Down The Drain

Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16 – Released

PLU1-5-Chart-Image-72dpiWorkplace safety is everyone’s responsibility, especially in the interest of reducing potential risks and preventing hazards from occurring. As a result, Pro-Visual Publishing, in affiliation with all state branches of Master Plumbers Australia, has released this year’s edition of the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety, to educate all industry workers on the importance of maintaining a safe workplace.

It is essential that workplaces remove any obstructions or debris in order to prevent slips, trips and falls. In the plumbing industry, appropriate footwear must be worn in order to complete a task safely and correctly. In relation to this, following certain procedures while working at heights is another prominent topic highlighted in this year’s edition.



In addition, eye injuries are quite common in the industry, as plumbers are subjected to work in diverse workspaces. Potential hazards that could come into contact with a worker’s eye include sparks, dust, chemicals, iron filing, and airborne debris. Furthermore, manual handling is another component of plumbing that causes musculoskeletal injuries. Workers are advised to complete basic stretches and warm up exercises in order to prepare for the day and the activities involved.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2015/16. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
