ANZ believes that the safety, security, physical and mental wellbeing of our people lies at the heart of our company’s success.
Health and Safety Policy
Our Occupational Health and Safety Policy outlines our commitment to ensure that the way in which we conduct our operations does not put the health and safety of any person at risk.
Health and Safety Management System
ANZ has implemented a Health and Safety Management System (HSMS) to identify, evaluate and control factors which may affect the health, safety, security and wellbeing of employees, customers, contractors, visitors and members of the public.
ANZ’s HSMS is a continuous improvement process aligned and consistent with the five key principles of health and safety management specified in Australia/New Zealand Standards 4801, 4804 and OHSAS18001. Our system is regularly audited by external, certified auditors.
ANZ has a number of wellbeing priorities and programs to support both our organisational purpose and the physical, mental, social and financial wellbeing of our people.
Employee Assistance Program
The Employee Assistance Program is a confidential counselling service available to all ANZ employees. The service provides professional guidance and support with work or personal problems such as trauma, bereavement, relationship difficulties or dealing with change.
Health and Safety Training Programs
All employees are required to complete mandatory online health and safety training on an annual basis, as part of our ‘ANZ Essentials’ (Risk Accreditation Framework). This training curriculum helps managers to identify essential and role specific training requirements for each employee.
Training courses include: general health and safety awareness, emergency preparedness, safe computer use, manual handling, managing hazards and incident management.
