Work Health & Safety
You must align with the WHS standards of the place that you are working, as well as the ANU’s own standards
Hazards, small or large, exist in any work environment. Understanding these hazards is a key responsibility of your team. This is particularly relevant if you are undertaking work in a workshop. We do not support students working in ad-hoc spaces that are not appropriate for the task, and students should seek advice if they are uncertain.
We will run an introduction to the relevant work health and safety (WHS) and Technical support staff at the beginning of each semester, including a workshop induction. If you are unable to attend, these can be arranged separately for your team.
All students should understand where relevant:
- the ANU Work Health and Safety Management (Procedure) policy
- the ANU Work Health and Safety procedure.
- the Australian Standards AS IEC 61882:2017 Hazard and Operability Studies - application guide
