Safety in design

The University of Melbourne’s Design Standards are used by consultants and University staff involved in the design and development of the University’s built environment.

The Design Standards provide an essential link between the University’s strategic objectives and the built form that assists in delivering those objectives.

The Design Standards set out the minimum requirements for the design and construction of the University’s physical infrastructure.

Health and safety requirements are embedded throughout many of the design standards. Additionally, Section 2: Occupational Health and Safety concentrates on health and safety including reference to relevant legislation and standards.
