It’s a chance for people to share information about safety concerns at work The information from staff is relayed to senior management and an action plan is developed as a priority. Senior management will come back to staff with the response to the OHS concerns identified All this information is stored on a central database
  11. 11. Procedure for reporting risks and incidents Employees report risks and incidents by filling out a form available from reception. This is given to our company’s Safety Representatives The information and responses are stored on a central database. As well as filling out this form, the employee must advise their direct supervisor of the risk/incident. Safety Representatives take the matter to senior management to ensure it is fully investigated. Outcome of investigation is reported back to staff as a priority and the response to the incident will be reviewed to see how it could have been dealt with better.
  12. 12. How we discuss OHS issues Report the incident to your supervisor and safety advisor and tell colleagues. Every week we discuss these issues during our staff meetings If you have a suggestion for how we can deal with an OHS issue more effectively, tell the Safety Reps If you are still dissatisfied with how a matter has been dealt with, you are welcome to discuss it with Senior Management
