Health and Aged Care
The ageing of our population is a major factor underpinning the ‘care boom’
Health and Aged Care services provided by doctors, nurses, dentists, physiotherapists, childcare workers and aged care providers has made the largest contribution to the nation’s jobs growth over the past 15 years. It now employs more than 1.5 million people, or one in every eight Australian workers.
The ageing of our population is a major factor underpinning the care boom because older people tend to consume more healthcare services. Organisations that provide these services, delivered out of various facilities such as hospitals, clinics and aged care homes are required under the WHS Act 2011 to ensure the health and safety of not only their employees, but all workers including the various contractors, carers, volunteers and suppliers that they engage at their facilities.
Managing Contractors, Carers, Volunteers and Suppliers at Aged Care Facilities
Aged care facility managers must look after the compliance requirements of workers and service providers at their facilities. It is a challenge to manage the compliance requirements of a diverse range of service providers through a consistent process across various sites.
- How do aged care facility managers ensure that their service providers meet minimum compliance criteria such as security checks, qualifications and insurances?
- Do our engaged service providers comply with the minimum WHS requirements?
- Do aged care facility managers have an effective corporate induction process? Is there a site specific induction?
