Work Health and Safety

The NCA is committed to providing a safe working environment, minimising any potential work health and safety (WHS) risks, and to facilitating work-life balance for employees.

During 2018-19, the NCA made significant progress in a major redevelopment and upgrade of our WHS arrangements across the NCA’s operations. The program of work included implementing a comprehensive review and upgrade of our policy and procedural documentation and the introduction of a new business system. These new systems include a number of active WHS measures for staff, contractors and volunteers. The program of work is expected to be completed and implemented during 2019-20.

In May 2019, the NCA provided free influenza vaccinations for NCA staff and volunteers. NCA employees and their family members continue to be provided with access to an Employee Assistance Program, a service that provides free, confidential counselling and guidance.

First aid officers are located throughout NCA premises to ensure assistance is available when needed.

There were no notifications to Comcare of an injury or dangerous incident during 2018-19 involving NCA staff.
