OH&S and Industrial Training

CPSU Members are eligible to take Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) and Industrial training courses run by CPSU.

We don't live to work - it's the other way around. You have every right to expect that you will finish work each day as fit and healthy as when you started, having been fairly treated and well remunerated.

Occupational Health and Safety is a primary focus of CPSU. We employ a dedicated Health and Safety expert, we run training sessions for members, and we actively encourage and participate in government health and safety improvement programmes.

If you have any questions regarding OH&S please contact the CPSU OHS Officer.
