Pro-Visual Publishing (AR) Interactive has published a body repairers guide to workplace safety for 2021/22.

The automotive mechanic and body repairers industries have recognised a strong safety culture is important for employee morale to productivity, improving quality and efficiency. The released guide to workplace safety is also endorsed by the National Safety Council Australia and industry partnering associations: Institute of Automotive Mechanical Engineers, Australian Autoglass Industry Alliance and Australasian Automotive Transmissions Rebuilders.

The guide utilises the latest WHS regulatory guidelines and framework focussed on pro-active prevention of injury, ill-health and essential information in order to help create a workplace safety culture of zero harm. Young worker and mental health is a primary focus of the guide, viewed through the framework of risk management, protecting young workers from both physical and psychological workplace hazards, as well as human factors encompassing error prevention.

Developed with interactive AR capabilities for use with a smart device, the guide improves safety knowledge and capabilities of students, apprentices and trainees using imagery and technology, rather than technical, written documents.

Young workers aged 15 to 24 years, who comprise 17 per cent of the Australian workforce, are over-represented in injury statistics compared to older and more experienced workers.

Pro-Visual Publishing and the partnering associations have selected additional subject matter that addresses WHS issues pertinent to the industry, including: workshop housekeeping to eliminate workplace hazards; chemical exposure risk and management; personal protective equipment.
