Securing safer workplaces at NAB

Members have been raising concerns with Health and Safety Reps (HSRs) since the onset of Omicron.

FSU HSR Justine Sherwood met with NAB management last week, including QLD State Manager Tom Crowley, to discuss concerns within QLD branches. Since then, NAB has agreed to a number of proposals –

  • Limiting the number of colleagues in the front of house to one per day (Gold Coast).
  • Increasing security guard presence with a minimum of 3 additional guards along the coastal branches.
  • Closure of one branch in every market, throughout Queensland, for a week at a time (throughout February) to assist forward planning, improve staffing levels and limit the number of branches for staff to work across.
  • Weekly meetings between HSRs and NAB to maintain open dialogue.

These improvements will be in place for all of February and will be reviewed for extension if the COVID situation has not improved.

How to get involved

More can be done to ease the strain on NAB members around the country, including the suspension of sales/performance objectives.

How to elect a HSR

HSRs play a crucial role in helping prevent injury and illness at work by giving employees a voice and by ensuring management reduces or eliminates unsafe work practices.

If you would like to know more about becoming or would like to nominate as a HSR for your workplace, email and we will be in touch.
