Nicks, cuts, scratches and burns. Minor injuries that can occur to any one of us no matter how careful we are. Minor injuries to the skin that are often ignored. But it must be remembered that skin is a vital organ; one that should not be ignored.
Treatment of injuries that do not require a doctor's visit?
Cuts: Cuts require immediate professional attention if:
There is severe bleeding, especially arterial wounds, which literally pump blood from the body.
Puncture wounds, such as those caused by a rusty nail or animal bite. These will require a tetanus booster shot.
Cuts more than one half inch long and one quarter inch deep, which will require stitches.
Flu season is coming again, where offices are overtaken by illness, that seems to hit one or more of your colleagues at a time, leaving you short staffed and, consequently, under productive.
AM Retail Services will help your business with cleaning and disinfecting your office as part of a broad approach to slowing the spread of flu, helping to keep your office environment healthy during the flu season.
It is well known that the spread of cold and flu viruses could have a devastating effect on productivity of the team due to employee absences.
Our quarterly OHS meeting was held on the 16th of May 2019 at our head office in Melbourne. Attendees involved the following AM Retail Services management staff, Louie Karanikolos (admin manager), Con Karanikolos (Area Manager) and George Gasparinatos (Area manager) and employee representatives Anastasia Gianoulas, Allen Farley, Voula Katsoulis, Jacqueline Brennan and Ivan Medina.
It was noted in the meeting that there were no lost time injuries, and the Toolbox talk for April 2019 – Cuts and Burns was discussed in great detail. It was also noted that there were no environmental incidents and no fines from regulators for the last 3 months.
The meeting also involved thorough analysis of our OH&S manual sections where there were no changes made by management since July 2018 and there were no suggestions during this meeting for any changes.
It was noted that our health and safety legal register was last reviewed on 11th April 2019 by AM Retail Services management and it was concluded that our company was in compliance with every legislation on our legal register by the Admin manager, Louie Karanikolos.
