It is the objective of Aircare Services to ensure that all of our workplaces are safe, healthy and accident free for all employees, residents and visitors. Aircare Services regards compliance with legislation as the minimum standard and is committed to improving safety performance throughout all of its workplaces.
It is recognized that occupational safety and health involves shared responsibilities, a team approach and continual improvement. Consequently, Aircare Services is committed to a consultative approach in Safety and Health through employees, resource persons and safety chats.
It is a central philosophy of Aircare Services that employee safety and health will not be compromised, and will not be subordinate to any other organizational objective.
Aircare Services strives to make the work place a safe platform for all employees, with an up to date OHS&E policy that is revised on a regular basis all employees are:
With the active involvement of all staff we provide safe work environments through internal performance systems, policies and guidelines developed within the company. The focus of prevention through equipment checks, site inspection by supervisors or managers to make sure safety is always the number one priority.
The purpose of this policy is to minimize the occupational safety and health risks associated with persons being under the influence of alcohol and other drugs whilst at the workplace.
To inform employees of the Aircare Services Alcohol and Other Drugs Policy.
This procedure covers 3 areas of alcohol and other drugs management:
It is a Company requirement that there be zero impairment to work performance arising from alcohol or drug use and/or abuse whilst on Company business, at any Company location, or when being called into work on rostered availability.
Zero impairment to work performance means there should be no observable change in work performance due to the use and/or abuse of drugs and/or alcohol.
Any employee who is not rostered, but called into work at short notice, has the right to refuse if in their assessment they do not meet the zero impairment requirement of this policy. Management or any other employee should never attempt to make a judgment on a medical condition or problem. All comments and/or assessments should be limited to fitness for work and/or the ability to perform work and associated duties.
A person who is affected by drugs and alcohol will not be allowed to work until that person can work in a safe manner.
Aircare is committed to minimizing the impact on our environment during all business operations. The goal at Aircare is to prevent unnecessary harm to the environment and we aim to continuously improve our performance in regards to environment management by encouraging staff to be vigilant in monitoring the impact of their activities.
To ensure this occurs, Aircare will comply with all environmental legislation and regulations, both State and Federal.
Environmental Management is to be discussed at any regular staff and management meetings and suggestions for lessening the impact on the environment are welcome at all times.
