Hot Tips for new HSRs, from some old hands 

Hearing Loss: Did you know that at the noise level standard of 85dBA nearly one in five workers will suffer hearing loss over the course of their working life. For this reason the AMWU has distributed posters and booklets to encourage our HSRs to take up the issue of noise levels.

Click here for the poster and booklet. Contact your state H&S contact if you haven't received a copy in the mail {please note Victorian HSRs will have received a different poster} 

For further information contact your AMWU Delegate, Organiser or health and safety contact person. 

For information about these fact sheets or to order copies, contact us at amwu@amwu.asn.au or ring the HelpDesk on 1300 732 698
