Supporting the next generation of apprentices and trainees
EML is helping PEER VEET educate apprentices and trainees on the importance of work health and safety procedures and help prevent workplace injury. PEER VEET works to ensure work health and safety (WHS) agreements are in place with employers receiving their apprentices and trainees, and that employers continue to provide quality training in all facets of WHS.
PEER VEET is both a South Australian Group Training Organisation (GTO) and Registered Training Organisation (RTO) which supplies apprentices and trainees to the plumbing, electrical, electronic and refrigeration sectors.
Through Member Benefits, PEER VEET was able to develop a short educational film to help educate apprentices and trainees on the importance of workplace health and safety.
Featuring Max Frohlich, a South Australian electrician who sustained severe burns to 31% of his body in a workplace accident, the educational film was designed to raise awareness of the importance of workplace safety and the devastating effects workplace accidents can have.
“The film featuring Max was one in a series we produced and are an integral part of our sign up process for new apprentices, trainees and host employers in the electrical industry,” said PEER VEET WH&S Manager Malcom Baxter. “Feedback from all who view them is that they deliver an ultimate and unforgettable impact.”
