Surprising, isn’t it, that in January alone this year, there have already been 5 fatalities in the transport, postal & warehousing sector according to Safe Work Australia.
Is it really that surprising? Last year’s figures, the transport, postal and warehousing sector ranked the highest in terms of total work-related deaths, with 64 deaths recorded.
In light of these figures a new research reveals that truck driving is one of the deadliest jobs in Australia.
According to a report from Fairfax Media, the Macquarie University study surveyed 559 truck drivers and found that a high proportion of workers spend long and dangerous hours carrying unsafe loads to avoid losing their jobs.

Author, Professor Louise Thornthwaite from Macquarie University’s Centre for Workforce Futures, said the study reveals a “blame the victim” culture and urged those at the top of the Chain of Responsibility to be held accountable for safety.
Do you know your obligations and duties when it comes to health and safety in your workplace? Is safety a priority or do you “turn a blind eye just so the job gets done”?
For the transport, postal and warehousing industry, more obviously needs to be done to achieve better safety outcomes and keep workers and drivers safe while on the job.
To address some of the major hazards and concerns within the transport, postal and warehousing sector, recently released transport and warehouse safety resource guides, provide managers and their workers with advice on the following hot-topics:
  • Chain of Responsibility (CoR) and compliance.
  • Manual handling, loading and unloading safety.
  • Pallet racking and risk assessment.
  • Traffic management.
  • Fatigue and speed management.
This year, both of the transport and warehouse sector guides provide readers with layers of interactivity now that they are both Augmented Reality capable. Use the Pro-Vis AR app to access further resources and engaging content, to encourage and ensure that safety is a priority in your workplace rather than a process of “ticking the boxes to look compliant”.


  1. Safety is prior concern. So, suitable initiatives needs to be taken in order to ensure safety for the workers of the warehouse. Use of damaged components could compromise the safety of the workers. So, it is really essential to inspect the condition of different components of the warehouse and replace the damaged components with suitable alternatives. Apart from this, the space available for the movement of the forklift and other important instruments also affects the safety of the workers, as such instrument needs adequate space in order to move different materials in a more secure way.

  2. I just want to say Thank You to everyone who supported me through the years. My name is Manuel Franco, New Berlin, Wisconsin. My story of how I won the Powerball lottery of $768.4M is a bit of a tale. I have been playing Powerball tickets for 6 years now since I turned 18. I bought my first ticket on my 18 birthday. I was feeling very lucky that day because I had contacted Dr. Odunga Michael to help me with the winning Powerball numbers. I really had that great great feeling that I looked at the camera wanting to wink at it. I only did a tiny part of it and trusted him. He gave me the numbers after I played a couple other tickets along with it for $10. I checked my ticket after the winnings came online and saw the numbers were correct including the Power play. I screamed for about 10 minutes because it felt like a dream. I had won $768.4M. You can check my winning testimony with the lottery officials just with my name search. Thank you Dr Odunga. Well, his email is and you can also call or Whats-app him at +2348167159012 so you guys can contact him
