Our safety programs
Zero injuries, zero harm and zero tolerance for unsafe acts and workplaces. This is our benchmark. To achieve this, we have comprehensive safety policies and management plans in place to make sure everybody’s covered.
Dog safety campaign
Specialised training programs have been trialled to teach posties how to read a dog's body language and safely manage canine encounters.
As a result, our posties have changed the way they interact with dogs.
Volunteering and workplace giving
We encourage our employees to contribute to the concerns and causes that are important to them through our Workplace Giving and Volunteering programs.
Our people love to give back to the communities in which they live and work. We help by connecting them with a range of organisations that rely on volunteers to deliver vital programs. We also identify programs that match wider team-building objectives. Employees can contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We know a great Workplace Giving program is a significant contributor to a positive work culture. By partnering with the industry leading platform Good2Give, we enable our employees to donate to any Australia charity with DGR status. In the last year, 2,673 employees made tax-free donations via payroll deductions to their chosen charity and through our gift-matching program (of up to $200 each year per employee, with an annual cap of $400,000), we significantly increased the giving.
In 2016-17 the Workplace Giving program generated charitable donations of $732,067.38. This was made up of employee donations of $420,171.04 and matched donations by us of $311,896.34
Workforce fundraising activities are driven by individual people within our wider workforce. There are tens of thousands of charities and community organisations across Australia and it is not possible for Australia Post to work directly with all of them. Instead, we support our people by providing the right environment for fundraising in over 4,400 Australia Post workplaces.
