The meeting covered topics such as:

- Working when storms are approaching/lightning
- Drinking water responsibility
- Reducing or eliminating risk of injury by using machines and minimizing risks when necessary.

The Team Creates A Mobile Safety Stand
Check out this incredible mobile safety stand that the Nyirrunggulung-RISE and RISE Katherine teams created!
They wanted to make learning about Work Health & Safety engaging and practical, and we think they’ve succeeded!
The stand includes all the necessary equipment and information in one place and will be used as a prop for toolbox talks and answering WHS questions.
