Guards Injury Survey : Have you been injured at work?

Nov 11, 2020News

For over six years members have raised with Sydney Trains management the issue of overhead placement of door controls and how this contributes to workplace injuries for Guards.

Delegates from the Guards Sub-Division have raised this issue continuously through the WHS committees and through their HSRs by issuing a Provisional Improvement Notice (PIN) and asking SafeWork Australia to intervene.

Unfortunately, our concerns so far have fallen on deaf ears with SafeWork supporting management, and management shunning their responsibility to fix the issue. We need to show management and SafeWork that this is a major issue with the cab design of the Tangara. To do that, we want to hear from you.

To develop a picture of what is happening we have put together a simple survey. You can find the link right here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/85JKFDF.

We will also send you a text message with this link.

Please fill out the survey and encourage your workmates to do the same.

This survey will help us build a picture of what is happening for members, at work, and help us strengthen our case for a safe workplace, for everyone.

Please speak to your Delegate or Organiser if you have any questions.
