This event will provide information on the occupational health and hygiene program implemented on Australia's largest public transport project, the Sydney Metro.
Sydney Metro recognises the important issues of preventing work related illness and diseases in the thousands of workers who will contribute to the successful delivery of world-class infrastructure. Our health and safety strategy includes a specific initiative to address this significant issue to enable health risks to be managed through targeted occupational health and hygiene programs.
