Work Health and Safety - Air Travel

Senators and Members and MOP(S) Act employees are advised that guidance from Konekt on work health and safety (WHS) when travelling by air has been published on the Ministerial and Parliamentary Services website.

Staff who experience health and safety issues related to flying should report this as an incident to Konekt Response on: 1300 880 777 or response@konekt.com.au.

Staff who routinely experience health and safety impacts from flying should discuss their need to fly with their employing Senator or Member, with a view to eliminating or minimising the need to fly in the course of work duties.

The Fatigue Management policy provides Senators and Members and MOP(S) Act employees with information on how to manage fatigue in the workplace, including travel-related fatigue.

Online training modules on ergonomics and manual handling and safe travel, are available for MOP(S) Act employees via the Ministerial and Parliamentary Services website.

Konekt is the contracted provider of WHS Services for MOP(S) Act employees. MOP(S) Act employees should report any WHS incidents or concerns, including those connected with air travel, to Konekt Response on 1300 880 777.
