Workplace diversity

Guiding principles

The established principles guiding us were to ensure:

  • staff were treated with respect and dignity
  • the workplace was harassment free and harmonious
  • opportunities for redress against discrimination and harassment existed
  • staff skills and abilities were measured equitably and balanced with experience
  • all judgements were based on merit and not on stereotypes or discriminatory values
  • staff were selected on merit
  • staff had access to training and career development opportunities
  • staff had access to lateral and upward mobility
  • staff were aware of these principles.

TOP

Workplace Diversity Program goals

Our workplace diversity goals are to:

  • find effective ways to productively use the different perspectives we each have along with our respective skills and knowledge
  • ensure that no person within CASA is prevented from contributing to their fullest potential as a consequence of unlawful discrimination, harassment and bullying
  • endeavour to find ways to broaden the diversity of CASA's workforce
  • find a mutually beneficial balance between life commitments and CASA's operational imperatives.

Activities and initiatives

  • The Workplace Diversity Sub-committee examined a number of existing and proposed policies and programs, including home-based work and bullying
  • a CASA staff member participated in the Australian Public Service Senior Women in Management Program
  • all induction courses have included a workplace awareness training session
  • a workplace diversity information site, available to CASA employees through our intranet, has been maintained
  • posters with anti-discrimination, anti-harassment and anti-bullying messages have again been distributed to all workplaces for display.

Occupational health and safety

This information about occupational health and safety is provided in accordance with the requirements of section 74 of the Occupational Health and Safety (Commonwealth Employment) Act 1991.

Occupational health and safety policy

CASA's Occupational Health and Safety (OH & S) policies have been in place for a number of years and have been effective. However, as the focus on OH & S becomes more strategic, we are reviewing those policies to bring them into line with the requirements of an OH&S management system that identifies, assesses and controls OH&S risks.

TOP

CASA has in place 16 Designated Work Groups. These are as follows:

Selection of health and safety representatives

Measures taken to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of employees and contractors

A major activity undertaken during the year was a Job Safety Analysis of the Aviation Safety Compliance Division. The primary focus of this project was to:

  • identify hazards associated with conducting normal work operations
  • determine the level of risk associated with identified hazards
  • develop key control measures
  • document corporate policies and relevant OH&S training programs.

The expected outcomes of this project include effective implementation of identified control measures, overall reduction in the OH&S risk level within Aviation Safety Compliance Division, and a safer working environment for personnel.

We also continued to incorporate OH&S as an integral part of induction programs run throughout the year, to promote awareness of the Employee Assistance Program as well as ongoing advice and management of OH&S issues.

TOP

Accidents or dangerous occurrences during the year

There were four notifiable accidents or dangerous occurrences during 2002–03 that arose out of the conduct of undertakings by CASA and that required the giving of notice under section 68 of the Occupational Health and Safety (Commonwealth Employment) Act 1991.

Investigations conducted during the year that relate to undertakings carried on by the employer

There was one official investigation conducted, and one Provisional Improvement Notice issued in 2002–03.
