UTAS has engaged International SOS to provide international travel advisory and risk management services. International SOS will provide the following interim services to authorised staff members, accompanying family members and students travelling overseas for UTAS business purposes:
The University of Tasmania recognises that hazard identification, risk assessment and controls are a critical part of Work Health and Safety (WHS) project and task management. The objective of this Minimum Standard is to provide information on how risks involved with planned activities including field activities are assessed and how controls are selected. It addresses project/task risks, rather than specific hazards identified in the workplace.
The Travel Policy establishes a framework for all University travel, including domestic and international travel by air, ground and sea transportation. The Travel Guidelines provide information to support the implementation of the Travel Policy.
The following Work Health and Safety Travel Requirements Flow Chart is available to assist you when planning your travel.
