ShopCare has established an industry collective working group to provide industry perspective and input, as well as to support the progress of initiatives within each of our workstreams. Members are engaged and passionate, and are sharing knowledge, expertise and creating momentum for change.
To inform each workstream, an ongoing piece of work involves the identification and review of critical risks* and controls within businesses across the supply chain, transport, manufacturing, and retail sectors.
(*A critical risk is defined as any risk that has the potential to cause serious harm or death).
Individual businesses are contributing their specific critical risks and the good safety practices and controls (solutions) that have been implemented to effect change. ShopCare is collating the information, conducting detailed analysis, and presenting the research results back to the industry in stages. An industry view of critical risks and controls will benefit all organisations and save businesses from ‘reinventing the wheel’. Your contribution is important.
One of the first activities to be undertaken was to ensure a common language, as businesses define and title HS&W activities differently. Through this work we can ensure shared meaning and align industry activities.
