Consultation

The University community is consulted about changes to health and safety policy, requirements and processes. Sometimes feedback and participation for surveys and trials is also sought.

Consultation helps generate better health and safety policy, requirements and processes, to achieve healthier, safer and more environmentally sustainable workplace outcomes for the University.

When a change to health and safety policy, requirements or processes is proposed, a direct email notification will be sent to key stakeholders, including elected employee Health & Safety Representatives.

All staff are encouraged to provide written comments on the consultation papers posted on this page. Proposed changes will always be available for comment for at least ten working days.

Feedback is always welcome, and can be submitted at any time via the Health and Safety Feedback Form.
