Caring for your voice is an important workplace health, safety and wellbeing issue. Safe vocal use is particularly critical for performing the role of a Teacher. The department has developed a fact sheet containing practical strategies for minimising voice strain.
The department provides personal voice amplifiers for departmental staff with vocal injury or disability. Staff who supply written specialist medical advice (from an Ear, Nose and Throat Doctor or a Speech Pathologist) stating that they require a voice amplifier to perform their role are eligible for a voice amplifier. Voice amplifiers are provided as an asset to schools and are loaned to the employee with the vocal injury or disability. Requests for voice amplifiers, with the attached medical advice, can be emailed directly to the Organisational Health unit for processing at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
