The revised HSW Handbook Chapter “HSW Action Planning” has now been posted on the HSW Website.
The key changes to the chapter for noting are:
- The transactional steps for the Associate Director, HSW have been removed from the process.
- The status reports for the Organisational HSW Action Plan will now be reported via the University’s Due Diligence report in lieu of the University Health and Safety Committee (UHSC).
- There is an option for the Executive Dean/Divisional Head to assess the need for a targeted Faculty/Division/School/Branch plan where overarching Faculty/Divisional HSW risks/trends are identified through Health and Safety committee reports, Workplace monitoring (safety review) activities, Workers compensation claims profiles and/or other due diligence activities.
Should you wish to discuss any of the changes or requirements please do not hesitate to contact your Senior HSW Advisor.
