Service SA Site Has Win on WH+S!

14 December 2017

PSA members at a customer service centre in Adelaide have been working in extreme heat without air conditioning for the past two days. Members had raised this matter internally with local management without any resolution to this unsafe working environment.

Yesterday morning Service SA Worksite Representatives escalated this matter within the Department and now have a number of temporary measures being applied, including industrial fans, while they wait for the air conditioning to be fixed.

Members are reminded that you have the right to a safe working environment, particularly in periods of extreme weather such as those Adelaide has experienced this week.

If you are ever unsure if the environment you are working in is safe contact your local Worksite Representative, PSA Organiser or the PSA Members’ Rights Hotline on 8205 3227.
