Concerns around appalling Woodhouse building.

There have been too many issues around the state of Woodhouse for too long, and your health and safety reps have often brought these to management’s attention.

Saying there are no resources is an unacceptable excuse for doing nothing and ignores the legal responsibilities of the employer.

Heritage listing creates difficulties when things need fixing or replacing but it’s frustrating that you continue working in an inappropriate space, and safety must be addressed by doing everything that’s reasonably practicable.

Your managers refusal to give you an appropriate timeline about when these safety issues will be addressed shows a total lack of respect as well as not complying with the consultation section (s.47) of the WHS Act.

HACSU has written to management on several occasions, and we get the same run around you do, but we’ll continue to make them accountable so you can have a safe workplace.

If you’d like to take action to fix your work environment, please contact us at or by phoning 1300 880 032.
