2019 Policies

Hutchies has updated its company policies in line with the expiration of our existing suite. These policies contain important standards that Hutchies has in place for our business – please take the time to refresh yourself on them.

Please also update any existing policies you may have:

  • Framed in offices and sites (at a minimum all offices and sites should have Work Health & Safety, Environmental & Quality)
  • In project Specific Management Plans, Manuals and / or Procedures 

We have sourced affordable standard clear frames if you would like to update yours. You can purchase them here.

The new policies can be downloaded below. They are also available on Hutchies' website (public) and the Doc Library.

7 July / Observation

Sunday 7 July through to Saturday 13 July 2019

NAIDOC Week is about celebrating Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and achievements and you will see lots of different events and ceremonies around your communities around this.

Some of our offices particularly Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne have had small celebrations to mark the occasion. 

The annual NAIDOC Awards were on last weekend and we’d like to acknowledge the brother of our own Glen Duncan (Indigenous Coordinator – Sydney), Dean Duncan who won the 2019 NAIDOC Person of the Year for the tireless work he does in education (see more here https://www.naidoc.org.au/awards/winner-profiles). Congratulations to the Duncan Family from all of us at Hutchies.

This year’s theme is titled Voice, Treaty, Truth, which were the three elements to come out of the Uluru Statement. Those elements translate to:

  • Voice – we want to be heard; we want be involved in decisions that affect us.
  • Treaty – we are one of the only democracies in the world that do not have a treaty or formal acknowledgement with its Indigenous people.
  • Truthour story of how Australia was colonised must be told; we have a very dark history and it’s time for it to be shared and for all us to own it.

If you want to know more please visit https://www.naidoc.org.au/get-involved/2019-theme or ask anyone from the Hutchies’ Training team.

Hutchies now has its very own Trademutt high vis shirts for employees! 

Trademutt is a social enterprise workwear brand by tradies for tradies. Its goal is to tackle mens’ suicide in Australia head on, and in doing so, make Aussie tradies look great, feel great and be part of a movement that will change the face of mens’ mental health forever.

Hutchies worked closely with Trademutt to design our very own special edition shirt. It's for anyone at Hutchies to wear, whether it's on site, in the office or at the monthly Friday BBQ.

These special shirts are free of charge and won't count towards your annual allocation because we want as many out there as possible. Head to the Hutchies' Shop or click the links below to get one now!
