Have Your Say: Consultation on Remote or Isolated Work Procedure

31 July 2018

The Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) has opened consultation on the Draft ‘Remote or Isolated Work’ Work Health and Safety (WHS) procedure.

The consultation period gives members an opportunity to help shape this procedure as is required under the Work Health and Safety Act 2012 and the South Australian Modern Public Sector Enterprise Agreement: Salaried 2017. A copy of the proposed procedure can be found here.

Members can send feedback to the PSA by Thursday 23 August 2018.

Members should have access to information relating to who their elected Health and Safety Representative is, or if their workgroup does not have one. Members can ask the PSA to help facilitate the election of a Health and Safety Representative.

Members who are Health and Safety Representatives in DPTI are encouraged to consider nominating to become PSA Worksite Representatives. Worksite Representatives are entitled to attend training in paid time at the PSA and is another great way to support your colleagues. PSA members interested in the becoming a Worksite Representative are encouraged to contact the PSA to discuss what is involved.

DPTI staff who are yet to join the PSA can join online here.
