Creating Healthier Workplaces

The Director-General and the Executive Management Board are committed to the health, safety and wellbeing of our staff, our students and visitors to Department of Education, Training and Employment sites.

Creating safe and healthy work environments requires the commitment and active involvement of every person within the department. Safe, healthy and supportive workplaces don't just happen - they are formed when workplace communities work together.

The department's Strategic Plan for 2014 - 2018 Adobe PDF document focuses on and identifies the promotion of safe, healthy and inclusive work environments as a priority action. Building on this focus and priority action, the following strategic documents provide a framework to integrate health, safety and wellbeing processes into our core business operations and organisational culture.Embedding a health, safety and wellbeing approach into our planning and our activities creates a robust and sustainable safety culture.

Staff who are safe, well and working in supportive environments are able to provide the best education to our students.

Healthy, safe and supportive workplaces start with you. Displaying the names of your local contacts is a good place to begin the development of a robust health, safety and wellbeing culture at your workplace.

What's new

Injury management support pack

The department is committed to supporting employees with a work related injury or illness to remain at work, or to facilitate an early return to work. As part of Safe Work Month and in response to our Working for Queensland results, an injury management support pack is currently being developed to provide various practical resources to assist Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinators and employees with return to work processes.

Remember, you will not be expected to go through the injury management process on your own. If you require more detailed information about the rehabilitation and return to work process please make contact with your Rehabilitation and Return to Work Coordinator.
