NSW Police Special Constables Work Health & Safety update

NSW Police Special Constables Work Health & Safety update – August 2017 (PDF version)

The PSA has recently written to NSW Police regarding a number of significant Work Health and Safety (WHS) issues members have raised with us, specifically:

  1. Weapons training
  2. X-Ray machine training
  3. Access to lockers
  4. Overwatch risk assessment.

The PSA understands the consultation with staff for the overwatch risk assessment is closing shortly and has requested a copy to work on with management before it is finalised.

If you would like to see a full copy of the WHS letter, or to raise any other WHS issues, speak to one of your PSA delegates. A reminder that the recently elected Special Constables Advisory Group is:

  • Dannie Abel
  • Tony Saraceno
  • Glenn Smith
  • Mark Tucker
