Post has agreed to monitor workers’ health and safety in the upgraded major parcel facilities in Melbourne (MPF) and Sydney (SPF) - after the issue was represented by the CWU National Office.
Parcel workers at the upgraded Melbourne and Sydney parcel facilities will be asked to complete a health monitoring questionnaire a number of times over the next 2 years. The aim of the questionnaire is to identify tasks which parcel workers find difficult or dangerous or which cause fatigue, discomfort or pain.
This information will assist in picking up emerging health and injury patterns. It provides the opportunity to change work to make it easier and safer and thus prevent workers from being injured.
