Slips, trips and falls when using stairs are a common cause of injury, but they can be easily avoided. Ensure you hold onto the hand rail or have it immediately at hand and don’t use your mobile device at the same time.

Please note some stairwells are only designed for emergency egress and not regular foot traffic. These stairwells are typically fairly narrow and only have a single hand-rail in the centre, meaning two people cannot safely pass while on the stairs as only one person would have access to the hand rail.

If you happen to be using one of these stairwells and someone is for some reason coming the other way, please wait at the landing while they pass so you can continue your journey safely with access to the hand rail. Do not attempt to push past people on stairs or walk sideways down the steps while the other person passes by.

Congratulations to William Gale, recent Computer Science graduate, who won the undergraduate student iAward for South Australia at the Australian Information Industry Association (AIIA) SA iAwards gala dinner on 14th June 2018.

William developed an Automated Hip Fracture Detection system that uses machine learning to detect hip fractures from frontal pelvis x-rays. The system demonstrates diagnostic performance that matches or even exceeds that of human radiologists – making it the first large-scale method to reach such performance on a clinical radiological task.

William will now be progressing to the National iAwards to be held in Melbourne on 30th August 2018.

The full list of winners and Merit listed projects is available here.
