Re-Opening for Business Webinar 2

The second webinar in our re-opening series will focus on providing our business community further information & support as we move into the 80% double vaccination phase of the national Roadmap.

Guest speakers will be Bronwyn Green, Director Business Education and Outbreaks Industry Coordination and Recovery Group at Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions. Bronwyn will go through up-to-date COVID restrictions and requirements, the projected Roadmap and be on-hand to answer questions.

Council representatives will be there to talk about current grants, vouchers and financial support available. We’ll also be explaining the next steps in our Outdoor Activation  plans.

There will also be an exciting opportunity for businesses to get some visual merchandising tips and tricks from professional stylist, Ailsa Page. Not only can strategically designed and arresting window display increase sales – especially as we continue to focus on outdoor retailing – this advice will come in handy for our Yarra Ranges Christmas Window Display Competition! More of which will also be revealed during the session.

Low Cost OHS Documentation Online Shop Launch

We have recently launched an online shop with Safe Work Method Statements (SWMS).

Our aim is to provide small contractors and trades whose employees undertake high risk construction work tasks with low cost compliant documents covering a wide range of work activities that can be easily downloaded and ready for on site implementation.

Our online shop also contains standard operating procedures (SOP’s) for a range of work activities in multiple industries where although non classed as high risk construction works employees may be at risk of injury and the availability of a safe work instrument outlining safety controls to be implemented for the work activity is highly advisable.

You can enter the shop by clicking on this link: Custodian Safety Services Online Shop
