Waihi busi­nesses were treated to break­fast and a good dose of safety in the work place at the Oc­to­ber Waihi Busi­ness Break­fast Net­work meet­ing. Net­work mem­ber Gra­ham Hawkes said guest speaker Ma­jor Oaks Safety Train­ing’s Stu­art Hind­ley gave a suc­cinct sum­mary of risks as­so­ci­ated with not hav­ing health and safety pro­ce­dures in place. He ex­plained that a health and safety man­ual for a small busi­ness was not nec­es­sar­ily a costly and time con­sum­ing ex­er­cise and even home based, one per­son busi­nesses should have pro­ce­dures in place. Those at­tend­ing were given a sim­ple check­list to see if they were at risk. A ma­jor area for at­ten­tion for those who con­duct their ser­vices on other busi­ness premises, is that they can be asked to pro­duce their health and safety pro­ce­dures be­fore be­ing al­lowed to pro­ceed, in fact the re­cip­i­ent of the ser­vices is obliged to ask for that in­for­ma­tion. TheWaihi Busi­ness Break­fast Net­work meets at Eaten Cafe, at 7am on the sec­ond Thurs­day of ev­ery month.
