Safety inductions and training

It is mandatory for all students enrolled in a SEBE unit to complete a safety induction program which covers OHS issues that are likely to be encountered during study. Each unit includes a safety quiz in which you must achieve a mark of 70% or greater to pass. Failure to successfully complete the quiz may result in attendance in practical classes/workshops being restricted and results for other units may be withheld until successful completion.

Unit requirements:

  1. Read and understand safety induction material in the unit teaching site for the applicable unit:
    • Architecture and built environment: SRA010 (undergraduate) or SRA710 (postgraduate).
    • Engineering: SEJ010 (undergraduate) or SEE700 (postgraduate).
    • Information technology: SIT010.
    • Life and environmental sciences: SLE010.
  2. Pass the safety quiz before the end of Week 2 of trimester.
  3. Remain enrolled in the unit for the duration of the trimester.
