Work Health and Safety
Welcome to MPAQ's dedicated page on Work Health and Safety (WHS) support and services for the plumbing, drainage, and gas industry.
At MPAQ, we understand the paramount importance of maintaining a safe and secure work environment in the plumbing and gasfitting professions. This page outlines how we're committed to ensuring the well-being of our members and the broader industry through comprehensive WHS resources and services.
The plumbing, drainage, and gas industry is vital to society, ensuring clean water supply, efficient drainage, and safe gas distribution. However, it also presents unique challenges and hazards. Check out some of our WHS resources and services below, which are designed to address these challenges head-on, keeping our industry professionals safe and thriving.
MPAQ Safety is a cloud-based workplace health and safety (WHS) management system designed to provide MPAQ members with a clear, quick and compliant system to manage WHS in their businesses.
Codes of Practice
Codes of practice support the Work Health Safety Act and Regulation by giving practical advice on how to meet your work health and safety responsibilities.
Managing Hazardous Manual Tasks Onsite
In collaboration with WorkCover Queensland, Toolbox Talk resources were developed to focus on robust risk controls, including consultative work design and development of engineering solutions.
Managing Psychosocial Hazards in the Modern Workplace
The new WorkSafe Queensland Code of Practice relating to managing the risk of psychological or psychosocial hazards at work came into effect on 1 April 2023. As an employer, it’s your obligation to protect your employees’ physical and psychological health.
Watch this webinar with HR Assured's Head of Safety, Adrian Turner, where he answers some of the most pressing questions about psychosocial hazards: what they are, the early warning signs, and how you can protect your people from psychological injuries at work and your business from the organisational WHS risks that arise as a result.
