New augmented reality guide to workplace safety

A handy new AR tool just released by Pro-Visual Publishing assists in recognising and controlling the key hazards associated with the transport and logistics industry.

It includes the latest WHS regulatory guidelines and framework and is focussed on proactive prevention of injury, ill-health and essential information in order to help create a workplace safety culture of zero harm.

Mental Health is a primary focus of the Pro-Visual Publishing (AR) Interactive’s Transport & Logistics Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2021/22 viewed through the framework of risk management, protecting workers from both physical and psychological workplace hazards, as well as human factors encompassing error prevention. 

New Initiative Healthy Heads Trucks & Sheds Foundation is also promoted on the guide which offers critical support and sets out Guiding Principles to improve psychological safety and physical health across the heavy vehicle and logistics industry by increasing the number of people trained in mental health at road transport facilities nationally; standardising policies and processes across transport and logistics industries to destress the environment for drivers; and focusing on individual mental health and improved wellness through education and resources.

Designed to be displayed in the workplace and distributed free of charge, Transport & Logistics Industry Guide to Workplace Safety 2021/22 is developed with interactive augmented reality (AR) capabilities for use with a smart device. Just visit the Google or Apple stores and search for Pro-Vis AR to download the complementary app.

Together Pro-Visual Publishing and their partnering associations have carefully selected additional subject matter that addresses WHS issues pertinent to the industry, which includes:

• COVID-19 Heavy Vehicle Jurisdiction Updates

• Utilising the new Electronic Work Diary (EWD) as a fatigue management tool

• On-Road Compliance and Enforcement which outlines Regulatory Policy framework

• Managing the risks of Diesel Exhaust Exposure

Pro-Visual Publishing, CEO, John Hutchings said: “With a national focus on road freight transport as a priority industry under the Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012-2022, the sector continues to have high rates of fatality and injury compared to other industries. Pro-Visual is concerned by these statistics and has a focussed commitment to improving safety in the Transport & Logistics sector, both on-road and off-road.”
