Work Health & Safety (WHS)

The Faculty of Education takes Work Health and Safety seriously and aims to provide a healthy and safe learning environment for all students, staff and visitors. You should make yourself familiar with the resources on Health and Safety on the University website, which provides in particular, information on: student health and safety, incident notification and response, insurance, and personal safety.

You should also, especially if you are from overseas, refer to the International Student Support website, which provides important personal safety hints for living in Tasmania. For more detailed information in an emergency situation refer to the Emergency Management website. Please phone the emergency number 000 for immediate threats to personal safety such as injury or fire.

It is also recommended that you read the general Health and Safety advice and become familiar with the University Work Health and Safety website.

If you have health or safety concerns during a lecture or tutorial, notify your Tutor or Lecturer as soon as possible. They will support you to access services if required, or provide advice on addressing the concern.
