The Faculty of Science EHS Office provides advice, support and safety guidance to all areas of the Faculty. Local EHS staff, managers and Heads may escalate issues which cannot be resolved in the local area.
We play a key role in audit preparation, online training reporting, incident management, and are responsible for drafting and managing the EHS Strategic Management Plan.
We advise local Faculty EHS contacts of changes to University policies and procedures as well as major changes to OHS legislation and standards. The EHS Office manages the Faculty EHS Committee, which serves all areas of Science and deals with issues and incidents which have broad applicability to the Faculty.
