Health, Safety and Wellbeing Policy

By law an employer must, so far as is reasonably practicable, provide and maintain for employees of the employer a working environment that is safe and without risks to health.

An Occupational Health and Safety Policy is a method of stating how you, your employees, contractors and visitors agree to meet their obligations under health and safety legislation when they are on school property or performing school-related activities. As an employer, you are required by law to provide a 'safe system of work.'

This Policy acknowledges the obligations of both the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited and all of the primary and secondary Catholic Schools it manages and operates in the Diocese of Sale in the State of Victoria, ensuring that the health and safety of all employees, students, volunteers, contractors and visitors are responsibly and systematically accommodated.

OHS Issue Resolution Flowchart Template

The OHS Issue Resolution Flowchart is to be utilised for the resolution of workplace occupational health and safety (OHS) issues providing an agreed process does not already exist.

This flowchart or the agreed process must be communicated to all employees and displayed in a prominent position in the workplace including on the OHS Notice Board. Any interested party may seek the assistance of any relevant employee or employer representative organisation at any stage of this process.

The OHS Issue Resolution Flowchart is to be completed with the appropriate Workplace Manager, Management OHS Nominee and Health and Safety Representative and printed in A3 format and displayed in a prominent position, including on the OHS noticeboard.
