Safety awareness - learn about your role in workplace health and safety

Managing Workplace Health and Safety (WHS) is an important component of contractor management at UC. UC has a broad array of WHS risks due to the variety of work that occurs across campus. Hazard types and workplace settings vary greatly and include: construction work, laboratories, workshops, hazardous chemical handling, radiation usage and infrastructure upgrades.

Emergency Contact Information

UCSAFE Commitments

UC is committed to:

  • The Health and Safety of all, (including: staff, students, contractors and visitors). UC subscribes to the principle of “UC SAFE” and expects all work to be performed with safety as the first priority.
  • Striving for environmental sustainability by managing all works in a manner that ensures risks to the environment are mitigated prior to any work commencing.
  • Complying with the Work Health and Safety Act and Regulation, and all other relevant legislation, regulations, codes of practice and national standards.

Contractor Requirements

To ensure UC remains a “UC SAFE” workplace and also meets its WHS Duty of Care, UC requires contractors to abide by the following:  

  • UC SAFE - Safety is always your first priority.
  • Comply - with all UC Procedures and contractual requirements

The induction and associated procedures and forms are available here on the Contractor Portal
