Work health and safety

We are a healthy university. The health and safety of everyone on our campuses and facilities is a major priority. We do all we can to make sure our University is somewhere staff, students and visitors feel safe and protected at all times.

Information for Students:

It is important to report all injuries, illnesses, hazards and near misses to a member of the University staff as soon as reasonably possible. If you notice a hazard or are involved in an incident, please inform a member of University staff so they can log a Health and Safety Incident Report on your behalf. Alternatively, contact the Health and Safety Team directly at usafe@newcastle.edu.au or call 4033 9999 and select number 5. Further information about Student Health and Safety can be found here.

UPDATE: The Risk Management Introduction training module now available in Discover.
