As part of ongoing work to align the Clean Energy Regulator with the requirements of the
Work Health and Safety Act 2011, in 2013–14 the agency reviewed and revised the following elements of its work health and safety and rehabilitation framework:
The Senior Leadership Team pays close attention to health and safety in the agency and considers a work health and safety report each month. In addition, the monthly performance report prepared for the Senior Leadership Team includes a section on case management and workers compensation.
The Work Health and Safety Committee develops and monitors the agency's health, safety and wellbeing programmes, providing for a participatory approach to the prevention of work-related injury and illness. Details of the committee's role and membership are provided on page 64.
In 2013–14, members of the Work Health and Safety Committee received training from Comcare on Effective Work Health and Safety Committees and the
Work Health and Safety Act 2011. All health and safety representatives completed the Comcare-approved Health and Safety Representative Training Course.
Other important elements of the Clean Energy Regulator's commitment to a safe working environment include:
During 2013–14, 16 non-notifiable incidents occurred within the Clean Energy Regulator. Two notifiable incidents were required to be reported to Comcare. No directions or notices were given to the Clean Energy Regulator and no investigations were conducted during this period.
Four workers compensation claims were lodged. Two were accepted by Comcare. Two were rejected by Comcare and are subject to appeal.
