Our People 87 staff attended a OH&S orientation session outlining the individuals responsibilities in the practical application of OH&S principles within the workplace; and a campaign was conducted to encourage employees to report incidents, hazardous conditions and unsafe work practices. The following graph demonstrates that as a result of successful implementation of the OHSMS and contemporary injury management practices; and the positive change in the incident reporting culture, which provides greater understanding of hazards within the organisation; we are able to report positive outcomes. The graph shows the number of claims, number of reported incidents and value of claims. Workers Comp claims costs have reduced by $125K compared to the previous year, as a result of the strategies, which have been put in place. There has been a 50% increase in incident reports as a result of the greater emphasis placed on reporting of incidents/accidents. The graph shows % of staff unplanned leave for each year over the past two years. The split is between sick without medical certificate (WOMC) and with certificate (WMC) and other, such as special leave. On average, staff took 13.9 days of unplanned leave. This is an improvement over the 14.9 days last year and compares favourably with the whole of government average of 15.3 days for the year. Security risk assessment audits were conducted in all buildings occupied by DCIS staff. The audits were conducted using the principles of effective security practice outlined in the Northern Territory Government Workplace Security Handbook. As a consequence, building modifications are progressively being undertaken where necessary. 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% Sick WOMC Sick WMC Other 2002/03 2003/04 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 1999/00 2000/01 2001/02 2002/03 2003/04 N um be r o f C la im s/ In ci de nt s 0 100 200 300 400 500 600 700 800 900 $0 00 's Claims Inicidents Cost
