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.
