Industry Improvement and Systemic Issues is the new name for the Industry Improvement Team

06 March 2014

Industry Improvement has changed its name to Industry Improvement and Systemic Issues. This change was made to assist external bodies in understanding the work carried out by the team.  If you aren’t familiar with the work the Industry Improvement and Systemic Issues team do – here’s a quick outline:

  • the team works with service providers to help improve their processes to reduce the cases of complaint

  • team members review complaint trends and engage with providers about the causes of complaints

  • the team investigates systemic issues and works with service providers to bring about agreed resolutions

  • team officers provide advice on emerging issues and systemic complaint issues

  • the team liaises with industry regulators and shares information about our activities.

Team members will now be known as Industry and Systemic Issues Specialists.

In the coming weeks the team will also be changing the emails and letters we send to you - in line with a new simplified systemic complaint handling process.

You are welcome to contact the team on industryimprovementsystemicissues@tio.com.au if you have any questions or would like to discuss a complaint issue.

Case Study - Steve

A man asked a service provider to connect a line to his new house. The service provider told him he needed to have a trench dug first, and transferred him to a contractor to organise the work
