ITCRA H&S program continues expansion to white collar professionals


The Information Technology Contract and Recruitment Association (ITCRA) has ramped up its workplace health and safety program iSafe for this year on the back of expansion of the program over the past 12 months beyond the IT recruitment industry to the wider while collar professional market.

ITCRA CEO Julie Mills said the iSafe program had now reached a critical point in its evolution, and data collected, and key initiatives and actions that the association and FCB can take, would now help to ensure that contracting and recruitment organisations involved in the program, and their clients, are able to address issues quickly and “deliver exemplary practice in the areas of workplace health and safety.”

Mills says iSafe is ramping up information on safety benchmarks for white collar organisations as part of the program this year.

“This program has now extended beyond ICT to white collar professional workplaces and, increasingly to companies external to the ITCRA Membership who want to benefit from the depth of knowledge and understanding currently contained in the reports and statistics.

“More importantly though thousands of contractors are benefitting from the workplace safety consultations and reviews conducted by FCB on behalf of those in the iSafe network – and that is the most important outcome of all.”

According to Mills, with more than 424 clients across 737 sites across Australia included in the program and, growing on average of 20 per month, “there is enough depth for the findings (through data collection) to be taken seriously as part of the white collar sectors attention to safety in the workplace.”

“In 2014, it was decided to aggregate the data against some recognised key safety benchmarks and identify consistent non – conformances across the 737 sites assessed to date and work to develop solutions and risk management guidelines to improve workplace health and safety, as this collective knowledge is a unique data set,” Mills said.

“Will Halpin, FCBHR Work Health and Safety Consultant will present the first of these reports in a webinar open to anyone who is interested in workplace health and safety trends, in particular, in the white collar sector – as there are some unique nuances in this space.”

ITCRA Executive Directors this week met for the first time in 2015, and association president Richard Fischer, said that the Directors had recognised the growing need for an ever increasing range of compliance knowledge and tools and that these are of interest to a broader market than just members – “so, like all good business models we now have a pipeline to new markets which seems to be working.”
