From the Director's Desk

Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) is the focus of this edition as it is a very critical part of your business. Or should be. Have you gone through the 30-point check list to see how OHS compliant you really are? You’ll see in our lead story that one of our members, Auto Excellence, recently went through the compliance process and was surprised how involved it is – and for good reason. Let’s make an effort to make OHS a priority this month.

We also met this month to put together a strategic PR plan for 2019 and have some ideas in mind to get you more involved and achieve greater exposure for your workshop in the media. Please speak to your reps about any media story ideas you may have in mind.

I hope you enjoy this action-packed edition.

Best regards,
Pieter Niemand
Director of MIWA
