The University Council Health and Safety Committee was established by Council at its meeting on 7 December 2011 (C 116/11).

The University Council Health and Safety Committee has been established to:

  • assist Council in maintaining a “due diligence” process, to enable Council members to discharge their individual due diligence obligations under existing and proposed workplace health and safety legislation;
  • oversee the governance of the University’s health and safety systems and processes; and
  • consider any on-going compliance issues with existing and proposed workplace health and safety legislation.
  • ensure that Council has reasonable grounds to be satisfied that a culture of “zero harm” is established and is supported by Council and management.
