Privacy and confidentiality
Privacy and confidentiality are paramount.
The survey does not ask for any personal information that could be used to identify respondents.
Some demographic questions are asked to segment responses into groupings to help identify potential trends within segments of the workforce, such as the difference in trends between the coal mining, mineral mining and quarrying sectors. This data cannot be used to identify individual respondents or minority workgroups.
All free text responses will be reviewed and de-identified to ensure they do not contain information that could be used to identify an individual.
All collected responses are stored securely in Australia, and the data you provide will be used only in agregate with the responses of all survey participants for reporting purposes.
The survey will be carried out in compliance with the Information Privacy Act 2009 (Qld).
If you have any questions about survey privacy, or would like further information, please contact the commissioner’s office at email@example.com.
The Commissioner for Resources Safety and Health has a licence negotiated with Safer Together to use their Safety Culture Survey Tool to survey an unlimited number of participants and use the results. The modified tool is known as the Mining Industry Safety Reporting Survey.
