On 30 October the ASU attended the OHS Sub Committee meeting with OHS reps at the Port Phillip Depot representing members on the development of a new heat policy.
This meeting was dedicated to setting the framework for the updating of appendices 2.1 and 2.2 that pertain to the Street and Beach team and the Waste transfer station.
Since the meeting management has sought feedback from the ASU staff and OHS reps.
We have provided our input in accordance with members’ feedback and we are pleased to hear that management has taken our feedback on board.
We are yet to receive the final version of the policy however below is an update on the key points:
- One policy for all areas of the depot ( not separated workgroups)
- Temperature for return to depot reduced to 36 degrees
- Considerations for ceasing work once back at the depot will be included in the policy
