Tenant Social Outings Code of Conduct Code of Conduct: PLH Social Outings & Events PLH Responsibility PLH staff and management will endeavour to keep all tenants / participants safe at all social events and outings and will always conduct a risk assessment of any proposed function or events and develop effective risk controls in line with a reasonably practicable approach in accordance with the Work Health and Safety Act 2011 (Cth) (WHS Act). To do this PLH will; Arrange safe transport to social outings e.g. coach hire Set clear boundaries about behaviour Set clear start and finish times for the events where possible Take steps to address and/or diffuse any conflict or potentially dangerous situations Have a fair eligibility process in place to select tenants for outings. Initially, all tenants’ names will be placed on waiting lists for each event or outing. The following criteria will be used to fill the places; Time on waiting list, priority for type of event e.g. school holidays program – families with children No consistent or extensive rent or non-rent arrears No history of anti-social; threatening or aggressive behaviour o Breach of residential tenancy Lease i.e. CTTT Orders etc. Implement PLH Policy and guidelines to ensure these rules of conduct are enforced. Tenant Responsibility Respect the needs and comfort of other passengers / tenants / children i.e., no placing feet on seats whilst travelling Parents and carers shall be responsible for the supervision of their children at all times, but may enlist the help of staff if available.
