Our low rates of incidents and injury are testament to the safety culture that is at the core of our day-to-day work place operations. We ensure that all of our work is performed under the tenants of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT

Genview have successfully managed to promote teamwork, commitment and community spirit through:

  • The encouragement of a sense of ownership of the project amongst staff members and fostering a team work mentality
  • Providing quality staff with appropriate supervision, training and support
  • Actively promoting a healthy work/life balance

We recognize that employees are our greatest assets. Assisting employees develop is crucial to the achievement of our goals; this increases flexibility and is an investment in both the performance of the individual and the organisation.

Throughout the recruitment process, there is a high focus on selecting candidates who have the necessary skills, certifications and expertise to carry out varying scopes of work as required. As a minimum, all personnel will have the training and accreditation required by law to undertake their assigned tasks. Genview will use contract labour when necessary, however, our preference is to employ personnel directly.

Genview does not foresee any demarcation issues. Under the existing collective agreement there are discrete classification structures that are designed to eliminate any potential demarcation disputes that might arise on the Contract. Genview shall enforce the scope and application of the Agreement to ensure that potential demarcation issues do not arise, thereby reducing disruption to the Contract.

INDUSTRIAL RELATIONS

Safety, integrity, teamwork and honest open communication are the foundation for Genview’s core values.

Genview has strategically engaged key qualified personnel to manage employee and industrial relations, establish systems, implement processes and procedures to identify and deal with issues raised by employees, employee representatives and subcontractors with the achievement of 0% loss of time due to industrial action.

Through these core values we have never been prosecuted or had any adverse findings made against Genview in any Industrial Relations Commission (State or Federal).
