Work Place Etiquette & Protocols ALINTA ENERGY WORKPLACE ETIQUETTE & PROTOCOLS Working in an open plan office requires the exercise of respect and tolerance by all. These protocols are supportive of a working environment incorporating courtesy, consideration and sensitivity to others. Teamwork across boundaries helps us to more effectively meet our customer needs. Safety Individuals are responsible for their own safety, the safety of colleagues, and that of all hosted visitors. Health or safety risks should be immediately advised to a Manager or a member of the Safety Committee. Hosts should not leave the building while their guests remain – without clearly transferring the hosting role to a colleague. Workstations Secure confidential information when your desk is unattended, including locking your PC with the screen saver. Use appropriate phone ring tones and volumes and make teleconference and speaker phone calls from meeting/quiet rooms. Be aware of your own noise levels and behaviours – a bit of fun is ok, ongoing high noise is disruptive to others. Lengthy, sensitive, confidential or personal conversations should be taken away from the open plan area and into a quiet room. Utilise offsite storage where necessary.
