New Fact Sheets: Your Rights At Work!


We've created these handy fact sheets to help you to understand and remember your rights at your workplace. 

Over 160 years, unionists like yourselves have campaigned to reduce injury, illness and ill health within the workplace.

Many of the current rights we have wouldn't have been won without strong unions made up of members like you!

One fact sheet contains information about your health, safety and welfare rights if you're working in an office environment. 

One fact sheet contains our Charter on your health and safety rights at work.

Statistics show that workplaces with high union density are safer than those lacking union representation. Workers in a unionised workplace are 70 per cent more likely to be aware of OHS hazards and issues. If your colleagues aren't HACSU members, talk to them about the benefits of signing up today!

For more information or if you have questions relating to any Occupational Health and Safety issues in your workplace, please contact your OHS Representative or HACSU Assist on 1300 651 931.

Knowledge is power. Keep your colleagues informed by printing this newsletter to put up on your workplace noticeboard.
