Health and Wellbeing
Tomago Aluminum is committed to supporting employees in living full, safe and happy lives now and in the future.
Prior to your appointment at Tomago you will be required to complete a pre-employment medical to ensure you meet site safety standards for health. If you are employed you will then be required to undergo periodic medical surveillance to detect signs of potential illness or health changes at an early stage.
Tomago Aluminum has a team of onsite and contracted health services including Physiotherapy, Dietitian, Employee Assistance Program and visiting Occupational Physician and as a Tomago Aluminum employee you will have access to these services. In addition we offer our employees’ health programs and educational initiatives to motivate our employees into healthy lifestyles such as Weight loss and fitness challenges and health based information programs addressing things such as improving sleep or better nutrition.
We also offer excellent benefits including a free on-site gym and discounted external gym memberships for employees and their immediate family.
Supporting and encouraging social interaction is important to us which is why we have a number of social events held at different times throughout the year such as the Tomago Family fun day and onsite activities supporting RUOK day, the white ribbon organization and others.
We recognize that our operations involving hot environments and shift work can impact the health of our people. We set clear requirements with minimum mandatory controls to manage and protect the health and wellbeing of our employees and contractors. Some of the harmful health risks and agents at our workplaces include exposure to musculoskeletal stressors, noise, heat and air borne dust. We manage our exposures with internally specified occupational exposure limits (OELs). Our OELs are in line with, or more stringent than, applicable regulated limits.
