ICT recruiters embrace workplace health & safety regime

By

Many ICT recruiters have been quick to commit to the workplace health and safety program established by the Information Technology Contract and Recruitment Association (ITCRA), with more than 25% of association member companies now engaged with iSafe.

ITCRA CEO Julie Mills said the association had now reached an “important goal in its commitment to workplace health and safety,” with more than 360 clients of the recruiters in over 550 locations submitted to the iSafe site for systems assessments by qualified WHS specialists from the FCB Group.

“In a unique mirror of percentages 25% of ITCRA Members have subscriptions to WorkPro – ensuring that the pre-placement ICT module induction records are available for almost 12,000 IT contractors, Mills said.

”Without the support of our insurance partners, OAMPS Insurance Brokers, the FCB Work Health and Safety team led by Amy Towers, the WorkPro team led by Tania Evans and the ITCRA Brand and Communications Manager Lauren Jensen, we would be nowhere near these targets.”

According to Mills, the most significant outcome is the “heightened awareness of the ITCRA brand to major clients who recognise the added value this program brings to the workplace.”

“And the ultimate beneficiaries are the contractors, who are included in the process at every level to ensure they have a workplace that is safe from overt and covert work health and safety issues.

Mills said that a number of years ago she made a presentation to WorkCover authorities suggesting that engaging with recruitment and contract organisations was not a safety risk but rather “a safety value add, if managed correctly, as it ensured a third ‘pair of eyes’ were involved in reviewing the workplace – and that had to be a good thing.”

“The ITCRA WHS Risk Management program, incorporating iSafe and Workpro, is demonstrating that position on a daily basis,”Mills concluded.
