Focus on safety in cold storage

WorkSafe Victoria has released a new guide to help improve safety in the state’s cold storage operations.

The ‘safe operation of cold storage facilities’ program has been designed to provide information on how to meet workplace safety requirements, taking into account the unique working environment of cold storage facilities.

The acting director of WorkSafe’s Logistics and Agriculture Industry Program, Ross Pilkington, said musculoskeletal injuries remained the most common injury in cold-storage operations.
