30th November 2015

Oxley Home Care has elected a variety of people to it’s WHS committee. The committee is made up of representative from Care Workers, Coordinators, Case Managers, Managers and a Director. The committee meet monthly to address any WHS issues, review policies and procedures and make recommendations to management. We value your input into this consultation process.

What is consultation and why is it important?

Consultation provides an opportunity to share relevant information and participate in meaningful discussion on work health and safety matters.

Using the knowledge and experience of everyone helps to achieve safer and healthier workplaces as well as better decision making.

Consultation is mandatory under the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 and Oxley Home Care will consult with all staff on a regular basis to ensure a safe working environment

Requirements to consult with workers

Meaningful consultation can lead to fewer workplace injuries and give everyone the opportunity to:

  • discuss and share their health and safety concerns
  • identify safety hazards and risks
  • find and implement practical solutions
  • contribute to the decision making process
  • communicate outcomes in a timely manner.

Consultation must take place on all work health and safety matters including:

  • undertaking risk management activities
  • proposing changes that may affect workers
  • making decisions about any work health and safety procedures
  • the adequacy of facilities for the welfare of workers.

Consultation can be in any form agreed to by the workers as long as it is likely to result in better consultation and improved decision making.

Your feedback is welcome and we have set up an email address safety@oxleyhomecare.com.au for you to send any issues or concerns you come across or have in the field.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

My Care Worker, Karin, is so efficient, capable and caring. She has proved to be intelligent, reliable, conscientious and her integrity is undoubted. She has been a huge factor in my living in my own home with all my health problems.

Her assistance in so many ways has contributed greatly to me achieving this and hopefully will continue for some time to come. I am very lucky to have the assistance of such a capable and understanding Care Worker from Oxley Home Care.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

I have been fortunate and blessed. My mother has been looked after with such professionalism, kindness and concern that is usually offered by a daughter or son. The Case Managers have never said no to my needs or wishes.

Testimonials from our valued clients.

Hi Gillian, I just wanted to let you know that sadly, I will be finishing up at CCNB on Friday. It has been a pleasure working with you over the last 9ish years, Oxley have always been so responsive and easy to work with, yourself in particular, and CCNB really value the relationship we have with you. I hope there are many more years of a successful partnership to come.
