Tweed Valley Hospital outstanding concerns

Dear Member,

The Tweed Valley Hospital will soon be opening and your HSU sub branch representatives continue to raise concerns with management, including:

  • Safe access to the car park at all times
  • Proper and comprehensive training for workers required to assist on the helipad

Communication is key – keep talking to your fellow members and your sub branch committee about safe working conditions, workload and workflow concerns. 

The HSU recommends for you to consider the following points in your workplace:

  1. Report all WHS concerns via IIMS+, including workloads, workflows, faulty equipment etc.
  2. Do not undertake duties or tasks if you haven’t received adequate training to do them. Report any such instances through IIMS+ and your line management.
  3. Where conflicting duties are being requested of you, call and email your line manager and ask them to prioritise tasks. Where no advice is provided, contact your sub branch representative for assistance and advice.
  4. Inform your sub branch representatives of any concerns and forward them any emails you have sent to management about your workplace issue.
  5. Talk to your colleagues about any concerns and encourage any new workers to do the same. Encourage them to join the HSU so that they can be represented and protected.

Your HSU organiser Mick Kearns will schedule visits to members at the Tweed Hospital to discuss outstanding concerns. You can reach him at [E-Mail not displayed]. HSU Secretary Gerard Hayes and HSU Assistant Secretary/Treasurer Lynne Russell will also be visiting TVH on Tuesday from 12pm. 

Do you know someone who isn’t an HSU member? Encourage them to join our Union today and have a say at work. We are always stronger when we stand together.
