In 2015, QCS introduced the Employee Health, Safety and Wellbeing Working Party to conduct a review of rostering operational requirements and guidelines in consultation with staff and the union.

The working party was focused on rostering and fatigue management systems to ensure a work environment that is safe, secure, fair and reasonable.

Consultation involved addressing:

  • Future rostering arrangements
  • Managing employee fatigue
  • Injury management and prevention
  • Healthy workplace strategies
  • Effectively managing resources and delivering outcomes

A key strategy under Employee Health Safety and Wellbeing Working Party Project has involved developing an action plan to improve worker health and wellbeing and reduce identified chronic disease risks.

Work units have an opportunity to provide input to any proposed health and wellbeing strategies through the Health and Wellbeing (HWB) Champions Network.
