Statement on Safety
According to the Workplace Health and Safety Act, 1995, it is a legal requirement that all persons at a workplace must not act in a manner that endangers the health or safety of any person at that workplace. As a student, your University is your workplace. When attending laboratories, workshops and field activities, fully enclosed footwear covering the whole foot must be worn at all times. Other personal protective equipment must be worn when required, or as directed by the lecturer or technical officer-in-charge. All requirements of the Faculty Workplace Clothing Policy must also be observed. In the laboratory clothing must fully cover the torso, and have at least a short sleeve (i.e. no singlets). Failure to comply with any of the above health and safety requirements may result in your exclusion from laboratory, workshop or activities - most of which are compulsory.
