Throughout the previous financial year, we kept you up to date on our progress against Monash Health’s Occupational Health and Safety targets.
We are pleased to announce that together we reduced the number of people who missed a day at work due to injury by 17% in just 12 months. On average, this means that 6 less employees per month are injured to the point that they miss at least one shift of work. Congratulations and well done!
Our completion rate for the training programs ‘Introduction to Health and Safety’ (85%) and ‘Managing Challenging Behaviour’ (72%) was below the target of 100%. This training is quick and easy to complete so please log on online via Latte.
The Health and Safety Strategy provides a clear, achievable plan to make Monash Health a safer place to work. This financial year, we are focusing on the following targets:
- Halving the number of lost time injuries sustained by a further 50%
- 100% completion of mandatory OHS training
- 100% completion of all workplace inspections each quarter
We are building a new Workplace Inspections system for all workplaces across Monash Health. It will be easy to use, will enhance our ability to reduce hazards in our workplaces and will track all actions.
Let’s continue to work together to achieve these targets by caring for your health and wellbeing, completing your online training and keeping your work areas safe.
