Nick Ayres's curator insight, March 23, 8:05 AM
In my job, similar things are happening all around me. We have had to cut staff, yet increase production making work life harder on all employees. As of late this has meant that i have been doing 12 hr days, plus trying to find time to play with my children, and fit in a bit of time for uni. This is becoming a real issue, people are being over worked, under appreciated and under paid.

Courtney Rieck's curator insight, July 13, 2014 4:23 AM

I am unsure if Australia has a program like this but it would be a great help for many companies as it helps people understand what is needed in a risk assessment. As I experienced on the weekend very few people understand what is needed in a risk assessment and how to fill one out. This program would both help people understand them and as reduces the time that is needed to fill one out. I think this would be a really good and useful tool to all who come in contact with risk assessments.
