SEBE Health and Safety

This area is a starting point for any students studying in the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Built Environment (SEBE) who require more information about Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S) issues.

Safety Inductions and Training

All students studying a SEBE unit or course must complete a mandatory Safety Induction Program which covers OH&S issues that are likely to be encountered during study. Each unit includes a safety quiz which you must pass. Failure to successfully complete the quiz may result in attendance in practical classes/workshops being restricted.
