Rehabilitation Policy

Injuries and accidents are preventable. It is our policy to do everything reasonable to prevent injury to employees, client employees, the public and damage to property. Chelgrave Contracting Australia Pty. Ltd. is committed to preventing injury and illness by ensuring a safe and healthy working environment, as far as is reasonably practicable, is in place before fulfilling an assignment.

In the event of injury or illness arising out of the course of employment, management will undertake a review and implement measures to prevent recurrence.

Chelgrave Contracting Australia Pty. Ltd. is committed to the rehabilitation of employees who may be injured or contract an illness arising from their employment. Rehabilitation programs and plans will be developed in consultation with an injured/ill employee and the client.

Where a period of incapacity exceeds 14 days a Return-to-Work Plan will be prepared. Steps to be taken to facilitate the return to work of an injured or ill worker will be included in the Plan.

The goals of the Occupational Rehabilitation Policy are

  • To ensure that the rehabilitation process is commenced as soon as possible following injury/illness to ensure a speedy recovery and to avoid long term problems
  • To encourage and maintain a positive environment for the affected employee, including the provision of appropriate alternative duties where it is reasonably practicable to do so
  • To cooperate in the provision of appropriate rehabilitation services when required and to foster communication between all parties involved in the treatment of the injured/ill employee
  • To ensure that all parties involved in the occupational rehabilitation process are working with a common purpose toward a positive outcome and allow the progress of the rehabilitation process to be monitored and objectives reset where required
  • To ensure that participation in a rehabilitation program will not, in itself, prejudice an injured worker

All employees have an important role to play to ensure the best possible outcome for their injured colleagues. Successful occupational rehabilitation requires involvement and commitment from everyone in the workplace.

Drug and Alcohol Policy

Chelgrave Contracting Australia Pty. Ltd. is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all employees and visitors in accordance with the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004. Chelgrave Contracting Australia Pty. Ltd. has a duty of care to all its employees and will take early action to respond to situations where the use of alcohol and drugs may risk health and safety in the workplace.

The Objectives of this Policy are to

  • Minimise the risk to health and safety in the workplace due to impairment caused by drug and alcohol use
  • Increase employee awareness of the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol in the workplace
  • Inform employees of the availability of drug and alcohol referral/assessment and treatment services
  • Intervene when an employee’s job performance becomes affected, or when there is reasonable cause to believe the safety and productivity of the employee or employee’s co-workers may be in jeopardy due to alcohol or drug use

Employees are expected to report for and remain at work in a condition to perform assigned duties free from the effects of alcohol and drugs. Consumption of and possession of alcohol in the workplace is prohibited during normal working hours.
Employees must not attend work or drive a company vehicle or mobile plant if their performance is adversely affected by alcohol or drugs. An employee, who is considered by their Manager to be unfit to safely perform their duties due to the effects of alcohol or drugs, shall not be permitted to remain at the workplace.

Employees are required to inform the employer if their performance is or may be affected by taking prescription and/or non-prescription medication. If, as a result of taking prescription or non-prescription medications, an employee is unable to perform their usual job safely, they will be given alternative work where available. If alternative work cannot be found, the employee will not be permitted to remain at the workplace.

Illegal drug activity or alcohol abuse which could have an adverse effect on an employee’s job performance or which could jeopardise the safety of other employees, the public, company equipment or the company’s relations with the public will not be tolerated. Any involvement with alcohol or drugs which adversely affects the workplace or the work environment will be investigated.
In order to fulfill our responsibility to provide reliable and safe service to our clients, employees must be physically and mentally fit to perform their duties in a safe and efficient manner. Where required by a client or at Chelgrave Contracting Australia Pty. Ltd. discretion, candidates may be required to undergo drug and alcohol testing. A positive result may jeopardise the individual’s employment where a negative result is a condition of the role.

All matters relating to drug and alcohol use will be treated with the utmost importance, sensitivity and in line with all privacy act provisions.

It is acknowledged that in some instances employees and potential employees will be prescribed drugs for the management of a medical condition. In such a case Chelgrave will work with the candidate, the client and medical professionals to ensure the individual is not discriminated against because of their condition.
