The safety of our employees is integral to our business. Genworth has a risk management based approach to reducing the likelihood of injury or harm in the workplace.
We have a Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) Committee which implements and monitors policies, programs and practices to address health and safety issues.
Our WHS system is designed to ensure compliance with Australian workplace health and safety legislation and includes procedures to ensure hazards and risks are identified, assessed and resolved in a timely manner.
As part of providing a safe and healthy work environment, Genworth also has a set of Workplace Standards in place that provide a code of conduct designed to create a work environment free from discrimination and harassment.
Our Workplace Standards set out:
- what is ‘unlawful discrimination’, ‘unlawful harassment’ and ‘workplace bullying’;
- the procedures in place to deal with workplace complaints regarding discrimination, harassment and workplace bullying; and
- Genworth’s commitment to providing a work environment that is free from unlawful behaviours, including discrimination, harassment and bullying, and where everyone is given an equal chance to use their talents and abilities.
