Health and Safety Management Arrangements

The TSRA fulfilled its responsibilities under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (Cth) in 2012 - 2013.

There were three accidents or dangerous occurrences during the year that arose out of the conduct of undertakings by the TSRA that required the giving of notice under workplace, health and safety legislation.

There were no investigations conducted during the year that related to undertakings carried out by the TSRA and there were no notices given to the TSRA during the year under the legislation.

The TSRA's Health and Safety Committee comprises TSRA staff and managers who are responsible for developing and implementing strategies to protect employees from risks to their health and safety. The Health and Safety Committee works cooperatively to manage all the TSRA's occupational health and safety policy and operational matters. Employees are informed of current issues and receive occupational health and safety publications from Comcare and other sources when available. The TSRA has trained employees who undertake duties as first-aid officers, fire wardens and occupational health and safety representatives.
