AMBULANCE WORKERS — PROTECTIONS
511. Hon MARTIN ALDRIDGE to the Leader of the House
representing the Minister for Health:
refer to the minister's media statement on Boxing Day 2021 on
presumptive post-traumatic stress disorder protections for ambulance
(1) Given that
the ambulance service is overwhelmingly delivered by volunteers outside the
metropolitan area, what protections has the government put in place to protect these
(2) Does the
state government directly employ any workers subject to the announced
protections; and, if so, how many?
engagement occurred with St John Ambulance and other employers of ambulance
workers prior to the announcement on Boxing Day last year?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question. I am advised that this question should be directed
to the parliamentary secretary representing the Minister for Industrial
