Workplace Surveillance

  • Galvin Engineering’s Workplace Surveillance Policy is guided by the Surveillance Devices Act in the relevant State or Territory. These Acts regulate the use of optical surveillance, listening devices, and tracking devices in respect of PRIVATE activities. It is our policy to prohibit the use of listening devices or cameras to record or monitor PRIVATE activities and conversations.
  • It is important to note that this applies to PRIVATE activities and conversations, but does not apply to activities or conversations where the parties should reasonably expect to be overheard or observed. Galvin Engineering has had cause to use surveillance equipment in the past to successfully gain proof of illegal or unacceptable activities, and whilst such incidents are rare, it may be necessary to use such equipment again in the future if similar serious circumstances occur. Therefore, in the interests of all stakeholders, Galvin Engineering reserves the right to use such devices to record or monitor activities or conversations carried out in circumstances in which the participants should reasonably expect to be observed or overhead. This could apply to most activities conducted in the common use areas, excluding bathrooms.

EMPLOYEE’S PROPERTY

  • The employer, property owner and employee all have an implied duty of care regarding an employee’s property and possessions that are brought onto the premises.
  • Galvin Engineering cannot guarantee an employee’s property or possessions against damage or theft or any other detrimental events. Employees park their cars on the premises, and bring property and possessions onto the premises at their own risk. We do not accept responsibility for such items. However, the Directors will assess all incidents on a ‘case-by-case’ basis and apply discretion when appropriate.

Ensuring compliance with this Policy it is the responsibility of the Corporate Services Manager, with full support from the Directors.
