We’ve heard from members at the Queenstown Hospital that management are forcing workers to take up the additional responsibility of becoming the fire warden for their worksites.
It’s a worker’s choice if they put their hand up to serve as the fire warden – not an obligation that you’re forced into.
Aside from this, there’s also training that goes into being a fire warden and it’s not necessarily safe to throw you into the job just because a manager says so.
Remember, you need to know what you’re signing up for before you take on a responsibility like this – and whatever the case it’s your choice.
If you’re having troubles with this issue or if you need more information, please make sure you give us a call on 1300 880 032 or reply to this email.
