Workplace Health and Safety

The University of New South Wales is a leading Australian University with a diverse range of research activities, teaching programs and centres of excellence, covering a multitude of disciplines and research areas. Health and safety is intrinsic to the way we do business at UNSW. Our overall aim is “Harm to Zero”, with the expectation that no person shall come to any harm while working, studying or visiting UNSW.

The following values form the basis of achieving our aim of “Harm to Zero”:

  • People are our most valuable asset, and we are committed to ensuring the health and safety of everyone in the workplace.
  • Everyone has a responsibility for safety; their own and that of others.
  • Injuries can be prevented and an incident-free working and learning environment is actively pursued.
  • Communication and consultation are central to working together for a safer workplace.
