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.
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 allowance on top of your normal salary.
It is up to an organisational unit to identify when a first aid officer is needed. When this happens, 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. You will be contacted by Health and Safety to tell you if your nomination has been successful.
It is the responsibility of the new first aid officer to contact Leah Pringle either by email or phone on 4921 8847.
