Workplace Health and Safety
Council is committed to providing a workplace that is safe and without risk to the health and safety of all employees, contractors, volunteers, work-experience students, visitors and members of the public.
Council recognises the importance of developing and maintaining healthy and safe working conditions in all workplaces and the importance of keeping the work health and safety practices in these workplaces under constant review.
Council’s work health and safety duties are achieved through the adoption and promotion of the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 provisions and its associated regulation, codes and standards. Additionally, Council places significant importance on the areas of hazard and risk management as well as injury prevention strategies. To assist in meeting these requirements Council has developed a safety management system.
Employee Assistance Program – EAP
Council provides access to an Employee Assistance Program for all employees and their immediate family who experience work-related, personal or health problems.
Providing this support not only assists employees and their immediate family in times of stress or illness but may also reduce the risk of injury or poor work performance occurring at the workplace.
