HSW Stakeholder Consultation - Revised Hazard Management chapter (4.0)

A minor revision to the current Hazard Management chapter (V3.1) (sections 3.2 and 4.1) has been made, to ensure the Head of School/Branch or Executive Dean/Division Head raises a risk under the University’s Risk management framework, for any high/very high residual risk activities (i.e. where they are intending to authorise the activity as documented). 

This change is in response to an internal audit undertaken in 2020 by PWC on the risk in research activities. 

The remainder of the Hazard Management chapter remains unchanged, as the current process reflects the requirements of the Work Health and Safety (WHS) legislation and the University’s processes.
