Pro-Visual Publishing, a global supplier of augmented reality (AR) interactive health, safety and wellbeing educational wall guides, has released the Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2023-24. This interactive safety app is targeted towards young plumbers and apprentices.

The release comes after Safe Work Australia reported that 15–25-year-olds have a 75 percent greater chance of being injured at work with apprentice deaths and serious injuries peaking between 7am and 10am.

Employers have a responsibility to ensure the work environment and the way workers carry out their work is safe, regardless of the type and terms of their employment. This includes protecting young workers from both physical and psychological workplace hazards.

Employers of young workers should ensure the apprentice is supervised at all times and working safely with the correct use of PPE and make sure they participate in Toolbox Talks and sign off on Safe Work Method Statements.

The Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2023-24 was produced in conjunction with Master Plumbers Australia and New Zealand (MPANZ) and endorsed by the National Safety Council of Australia Foundation (NSCA) and Before You Dig Australia (BYDA). It aims to recognise and control the key hazards with the latest WHS Regulatory Guidelines & Framework focused on proactive prevention of injury, ill-health and essential information in order to help create a workplace safety culture of zero harm.

Pro-Visual Publishing chief executive, John Hutchings, says that health and safety strategies and accident prevention measures need to be individualised and adapted to the type of worker most likely to be at risk: “Employers need to shape a culture of safety for young workers and apprentices. Having complementary WHS management systems allows businesses to anticipate, adapt and respond to the risks and opportunities created by a highly innovative industry like plumbing.”

Designed to be displayed in the workplace the AR Interactive – Plumbing Industry Guide to Safety 2023-24 is developed with interactive capabilities for use with a smart device, by simply downloading the free Pro-Vis AR Safety App via the App Store or Google Play.
