This year’s SafetyFirst award for Outstanding OH&S Initiative was won by MEGT for their 2020 Safety Stategy Plan.
MEGT held its first ever Safety Expo in 2014 as part of National Safety Month. The Safety Expo was a great success with visitors having access to over 15 exhibits including a fire demonstration in the car park, juice bar, BBQ breakfast, massages and more. Key note speaker Rae Bonney from BeyondBlue talked about mental health and wellbeing.
David Windridge – MEGT CEO said, “It is not acceptable that anyone gets hurt at work, we must do everything we can to prevent injuries in the workplace and ensure that everyone arrives home safe at the end of the day”.
The MEGT safety expo is part of a wider OH&S Safety Strategy Plan up to 2020 – that will see increased support for all apprentices and host employers.
