Injuries at work and workers compensation
If you are injured at work it is important to follow our injury management process. This ensures the incident is properly reported and claims processed.
36 AED have been installed across 6 campuses/locations in publicly accessible areas - click on the link above to see where they are located.
The AED, otherwise known as a defib, is very easy to use. However, if you would like you can watch a video provided by the supplier.
We have over 100 qualified first aid officers across our campuses, as well as at other University staffed sites.
First aid officers:
First aid officers are vital to all of our workplaces and facilities. Being a first aid officer is a rewarding role and provides a first aid officer's allowance on top of your normal salary. If an organisational unit identifies that a first aid officer is needed, nominations are called and anyone within that unit can put their name forward. Nominations are considered by the Head of School/Director and a name is submitted to the Health and Safety Team.
Please contact the Health & Safety Team via email or call 4033 9999 (#5) for further information.
The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
