People & Quality Solutions (PaQS) has won the 2011 Hunter Business Award for ‘Excellence in Safety’ for its Home-Based Work Agreement.
According to PaQS, the award recognises innovation in work health and safety and by winning this category PaQS now has the opportunity to enter into the 2011 WorkCover NSW Safe Work Award.
PaQS demonstrated its excellence in safety with its recently initiated ‘Home-Based Work Agreement’ explained Carl Reams, PaQS’ managing director and senior psychologist.
“PaQS as a flexible employer realised that it had a duty of care to provide a safe and secure environment for its workers who work from a home, said Reams.
“So we developed this initiative to ensure that our employees working from home not only see PaQS as fulfilling its legal and duty of care obligations, but also that we are playing a leadership role in work health and safety and ensuring safety and security in the workplace are a priority," he said.
